The winners of the third Backwards City contest have just been announced. Check out the Web site for the names and titles. Between Tom and Jennifer’s wedding and honyemoon, Jaimee’s trip, my TIP, and Patrick lazily sitting around doing nothing, we’re a little bit behind where we hoped to be on BCR #6—but only just a little bit. It should be in your mailboxes by the end of September or the beginning of October, with the next issue put together by the new editors following early in the new year.

Durham’s Independent Weekly tries to pick a fight between Backwards City Review and The Greensboro Review…and completely succeeds. (This time we finish it.)

On the plus side, this is probably the first time the poetry in BCR has ever been criticized for being too accessible. Via The Syntax of Things.
