Port Cities Review Launched!
With a splashy tagline: Facts And Fiction from the Places Where Land And Water Meet, a new literary review eZine has gone down the ways and set out to find readers who appreciate reading about our fascination and involvement with harbors and the cities who sit upon them. Port Cities Review promises a variety of entertaining, educating and enlightening reading. Along on the maiden voyage was a non-fiction article of mine, Two Cities, which discusses some of the water-borne connections between Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY and New Orleans, LA.
The writing assignment was extended by editor publisher Mark Vanderpool, who has taken the helm of this new literary venture with his usual verve. Looking over the balance of the writing in this new eZine, I was struck by the quality and originality of their writing voices, including Rafael Alvarez, known for his work on The Wire, HBO’s gritty series set in Baltimore’s poor neighborhoods. I’m proud to be in their company.
Editor Vanderpool has indicated that they expect to be in print, soon as well. I’m looking forward to a long, rewarding relationship. After 40 years on the water, I’m finally getting to know where I feel the most comfortable! Congratulations to Mark and his staff for a really memorable launch. I’m sure there will be no shortage of readers for Port Cities Review.
