The Almagre Review: @ Poor Richard’s August 19

Come join The Almagre Review at Rico’s Cafe (1247, 322 N Tejon St.) this Sunday from 2 – 4 PM. This is an informal celebration of the publication of our fifth Issue, made possible by so many contributions from our local writing and reading community. Contributors to Issue 5 are welcome to read their piece which appears in “Race, Class, and Gender.”

All are welcome. This is a casual affair, enjoined to the mild intoxicant of caffeine and married to the general joy of the written word. Along with contributors, we hope to hear from local readers and writing enthusiasts, so come with your favorite literary topics at the tip of the tongue.cropped-ar-monogram-q.png

Conversation with Constance Squires

Here at our journal, we’d like to take a minute and say thank you to local hero, Keith Simon, whose tireless work and support for fellow Creatives is truly a gift to Colorado Springs and the Front Range. Keith is the host of the Culture Zone, a weekly radio show where he chats with local makers of art, music, literature, and more.

The staff of The Almagre Review would like to thank our community for their patience. We missed our usual July deadline, and some of that has to do with bringing together an issue with challenging themes. We hope all may find elements that teach, instruct, and illuminate. And with humility, we acknowledge that this area of literary exploration could never be captured in 140 pages. This is our small contribution into the much larger pool of experience, and we hope you find time to be a part. Without a doubt, this issue is made possible by the wonderful authors and poets who honored us with their works. Our journal is indebted to them.

We will continue to provide updates as we move closer to the release date. Please feel free to tug our sleeve, Joe Barrera at jjbarr46@gmail.com, or John Lewis at larevistaalmagre@outlook.com.

Thank you all who have helped bring this edition to fruition,
The Almagre Staff
