LATITUDE, in its first issue published this week, spotlights several emerging poets along with new texts offered by some leading poets who curate spoken word events in the Portland-Vancouver metro area.
Objective was to produce a journal focused on expressive arts, what my professor, Nicholas Crome, used to refer to as “small literary magazines” back in the early 70s. Method involved gathering material from all sorts of contacts, without offering a preconceived theme for the issue, nor excessive guidelines, because I was hoping to be able to present both topical and stylistic variety. As for selection, I fortunately was able to accept something from each contributor. Results are initially appealing, although ultimately this is in the hands of the readers.
