From the staff of Long River Review 2017, thank you for the continued support.
This year, we are launching a Poetry Slam series on our website. Watch local poets read from their work, published here for the first time on LongRiverReview.com. Also included are text of the complete poems, and short interviews with the writers.
Our first post in this series features “The Anthem”, by student poet Mary Kozan. We will be posting more videos periodically in the blog section of the website over the coming month, so make sure you check them out! A complete archive can also be found in the Poetry section of our website.
Keep an eye out for some of these pieces in the upcoming 20th anniversary edition of Long River Review this spring.
