I am pleased to note that one of my new poems, “Autism in Autumn,” is included among the various works released in the Spring 2010 issue (Number 35) of Rio Grande Review, published by the University of Texas, El Paso.

The editors for this literary journal describe it as one devoted to publishing “quality work and daring texts that experiment with form. We are striving to forge an identity as a cutting edge review that exists as space for diverse voices: writers who may be multilingual, cross-genre, or experimenting with narrative and poetic form.” The current issue also is dedicated to works focusing upon the themes of obsession and aversion.

Readers are invited to visit the home page for Rio Grande Review and to examine excerpts from the poetry or fiction within the latest issue.

Hi Edward, I'm trying to open these links but each one asks for a password? Is there a different way to access the poem? Thanks, Joelle

Thanks, Joelle, for mentioning this. The password is something new, and I believe it is a glitch on the journal's end that I hope will be corrected.
