Poetry from Paradise Valley includes a stellar roster of 50 poets. Among the contributors are a former Poet Laureate of the United States, a winner of the Griffin International Prize, two Pulitzer Prize winners, two National Book Award winners, two National Book Critics Circle winners, six finalists for the National Book Award, four finalists for the National Book Critics Circle Award, two finalists for the Pulitzer Prize, and a few dozen recipients of other honors, such as fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, etc.

Best Books of Indiana 2011: Finalist. Judges' Citation: "Poetry from Paradise Valley is an excellent anthology that features world-class poetry, including the work of many artists from the Midwest, such as Jared Carter, Annie Finch, David Baker, and Allison Joseph. It’s an eclectic and always interesting collection where poems on similar themes flow into each other. It showcases the highest caliber of U. S. poetry."

Celebrate Short Story Month: Submit to VFR

Halfway through National Short Story Month, which is being celebrated at a number of literary websites and on the pages of blogs, this seems an appropriate moment to remind readers about the launch of a new online journal publishing short stories, Valparaiso Fiction Review, for which I serve as a co-editor.

As I mentioned in a note at the beginning of this month, VFR is currently considering submissions for its inaugural issue, scheduled for release in the fall. Information concerning the process for submitting work can be found in the Guidelines page at the Valparaiso Fiction Review website. I urge everyone to spread word about the upcoming debut of this new literary journal.
