Happily, today is LOCUSPOINT's fifth birthday, and we have one more reason to celebrate--
Brent Calderwood's San Francisco is live on LOCUSPOINT today.
Of the city, Brent writes, "The dot-com boom and bust of the past few decades have made the Bay Area a very expensive place to live—-rarely a good thing for poets and other marginalized communities. Nevertheless, it remains a sanctuary for free-thinkers." Check out his editor's letter to learn more about this lively and unique city.
Brent selected work by four San Francisco poets and included selections from not one, but two writers communities within the city, the Squaw Valley Community of Writers and GuyWriters.
The poets featured are:
Michael Hernandez Castillo
James J. Siegel
and a piece from Brent himself.
Thanks to all the poets who participated, and to Brent for his excellent work pulling this edition together!
Read and enjoy.
