"Pittsburgh Poetry Review" Launches Tomorrow

Posted By on Fri, Nov 13, 2015 at 12:14 PM

There’ll be a big poetry party tomorrow at the Pittsburgh Glass Center to celebrate issue 1 of this new journal, meant to fill the void left by the departure of the long-running 5 AM.

The inaugural issue includes more than 100 poems by 71 poets, including both Pittsburgh-based names like Jan Beatty, Jim Daniels, Lynn Emanuel, Ed Ochester and Judith Vollmer, and nationally known contributors including Denise Duhamel, Gerald Locklin and Afaa Michael Weaver.

Some 40 of the contributing poets will are slated to read their work at the event.

Pittsburgh Poetry Review was created by four local poets: Bob Walicki, Ziggy Edwards, Jennifer Jackson Berry and Michael Albright.

The event runs 8-11 p.m. Admission is free, with beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres provided.

The glossy-covered journal will be on sale for $10. (The cover price is $12.)

Pittsburgh Glass Center is located at 5472 Penn Ave., in Friendship.
