Our blog has been widely read, full of  book reviews, essays, poetry and literary news, interviews of poets and writers as well as area news. . We thank all those who contributed to the blog. The main focus of the review, reading series and blog has always been to promote poets and writers and we believe we have achieved this goal.

We now look forward to new challenges and goals, using more of our time to create and explore the craft.
