The newest issue of Crazyhorse has just arrived. It was printed last week and sent to my office today. Published twice a year by the College of Charleston, the literary journal has featured since its founding in 1960 the likes of Updike, Carver, Bly, Ha Jin, Billy Collins, Galway Kinnell and many more well-known poets, novelists and short story writers. This fall's edition contains the work of Dean Young, whose work has been nominated for a Pulitzer. Lastly, three of the volumes works were selected for the Best American Poetry 2007. Charleston's smarty-pants lit-crit periodical gets top billing along with The New Yorker, Ploughshares and Poetry. How about them apples? I'm looking forward to digging in. I''ll report what I find in future posts.
