Happy 2011, everyone, and welcome back to the LR Blog! We hope you had a joyous and healthy holiday. Here are a couple of updates to start off the New Year:
AWP 2011 – We’re Hosting a Reading!
Yes, the editors will be at the 2011 AWP conference in DC this year (Feb 3-5), and this time, we’re co-hosting a reading!
We are pleased to announce that we’ll be participating in an off-site joint reading with Boxcar Poetry Review. The event will take place on the Friday night, and will feature the work of contributors to both magazines. Here are the details:
Lantern Review & Boxcar Poetry Review Present: A Night of Poetry
Friday, February 4, 2011 at 7:30 PM
at Go Mama Go!
1809 14th St. NW
(Metro: U St/African-Amer Civil War Memorial/Cardozo)
Pay As You Wish ($5 suggested donation; no one will be turned away).
If you live in the D.C. area or will be there for the conference, we hope that you’ll consider stopping by. If you haven’t already, please take a moment to RSVP at our Facebook Event Page. We’ll be sharing more details about the reading and about our other plans for AWP as the time of the conference approaches.
Coming Soon: Issue 2
Issue 2 of Lantern Review is currently in the production and layout stage. We are extremely excited to be able to present what we feel is a tighter, more focused body of work this time around. A sneak peek of some things you can expect to see: a Community Voices feature on Sulu DC (with a secret, surprise element), lots more visual art than in Issue 1, and of course, plenty of wonderful poetry. Our goal is to have the issue out in time for AWP, so keep your eyes peeled in the next couple of weeks!
