Two of Amsterdam Quarterly’s fourteenth issue (AQ14) writers have received mentions in two literary magazines. Poetry mentioned editor Bryan R. Monte’s interview with David Trinidad on its Harriet Staff blog at http://www.poetryfoundation.org/harriet/2015/09/david-trinidad-explains-it-all-very-well/. In an article entitled “David Trinidad Explains It All Very Well” are two excerpts from AQ14’s interview that discusses Trinidad’s poetic influences, his interest in list poems and his thin, columnar, poetic writing style (with the editorial aside that: “this is our kind of interview.”) Click on the link above and read the entire post.
AQ14 poet, Liz Robbins’ smiling face can be seen on page 177 and the description of her win of the Crab Orchard Review’s 2015 Special Issue Feature Award in Poetry on page 178 of the September/October 2015 issue of Poets & Writers magazine. P&W reports Robbins won the prize “for her poem “Columbine Video.” Her prize-winning poem will be published in the Summer/Fall 2015 issue of Crab Orchard Review.
Congratulations to David Trinidad and Liz Robbins and thank you again for your contributions to Amsterdam Quarterly.
