The Laurel Review - News

A little bit of business this morning.

If, by any chance, someone is looking for The Laurel Review, that someone will not find it at the old URL. The university switched servers on us, and has left us in something of a mess (as I slowly try to put the thing back together, starting yesterday . . .).

Here's the new link:

Still not very pretty, but better than the last one. You will notice most of the pages don't yet go anywhere. That will be fixed. That is my desire. But I did get the cover and table of contents up for our new issue . . . I'm very proud of it. Come by and see it.

And finally, here's a bit of TLR news from the summer:

The Laurel Review / GreenTower Press
The Midwest Chapbook Series Award

We are pleased to announce that this year’s judge, Reginald Shepherd, has chosen Molly Brodak’s, Instructions for a Painting, to be published in the spring of 2007.

Runners-up were:

Erin Malone’s, What Sound Does It Make
Chad Parmenter’s, Weston’s Unsent Letters to Modotti
Gretchen E. Henderson’s, Wreckage: By Land & By Sea

Finalists include work from:

Tony Trigilio
Jeffrey Bean
Amanda McGuire
Reg Saner
Aby Kaupang

All entrants to the contest will receive a one-year subscription to The Laurel Review, starting with our Summer 2006 issue (which is delayed, but coming out in the next two weeks, or so they promise).

The final judge for next year's chapbook award will be Ray Gonzalez. More details will be coming.

Thank you to all who entered, and we hope you enjoy your subscription to the journal. A press is only as good as the quality of its submissions.

Gonna have to add Tony Trigilio to the list of poets showing up everywhere...
