2008 Squaw Valley Review Poetry

squaw valley review

This issue of Squaw Valley Review continues the Squaw Valley Community of Writers Poetry Program tradition of publishing a collection of poems begun during the poets’ week together in July. Poets submitted three poems–whether completely revised or exactly the same as the day the poem was first imagined–and three volunteer editors (participants of the Poetry Program) selected which poems to include in the Review. Proceeds benefit the Scholarship Fund.
