Edward Byrne's Blog

The highly respected editor of Valparaiso Poetry Review has started up an editor's blog to complement the semi-annual publication of VPR. "The editor's blog has just begun and will contain ongoing personal commentary about notable recent books of poetry. Since VPR receives many more review copies of new books than can possibly be examined within the journal, the complementary blog is intended to allow for ongoing further discussion and promotion of recommended books. I invite you to check out this new venue." It's located at: One Poet's Notes : Recommended Readings of Recent Contemporary Poetry. So far he's reviewed: Lynda Hull’s - Collected Poems, Brian Turner’s - Here, Bullet, Rebecca Dunham’s -The Miniature Room , & Dave Smith's - Little Boats, Unsalvaged.

Don't forget to visit VALPARAISO POETRY REVIEW . I have a poem in the current issue along with literati such as: Mark Conway, Frannie Lindsay, Jared Carter, Beth Simon, Jeff Knorr, Sarah Brownsberger , E.G. Burrows, Helen Ruggieri, Richard O'Connell, Heidi Czerwiec, Thomas Reynolds, Elizabeth Kirschner, Jason Huskey, Jeanine DeRusha, Nick Bruno , Carol Hamilton, Scott Welvaert, Jordan Sanderson, Rane Arroyo, Taylor Graham, J.D. Schraffenberger, Lynn Strongin. There's an interesting review by Ed. Byrne on CLAUDIA EMERSON’S third collection: "LATE WIFE ".
