I promised my friend KL that I’d give this journal a local shout-out, so here’s some info on this unique publication and reading opportunity.
Rain Shadow Review is the brainchild of Arizona poet Richard Shelton, whose involvement with prison writing workshops goes all the way back to 1974. The writing in the magazine comes from current or former inmates of the Arizona prison system.
The last three issues of Rain Shadow Review have been edited by UA professor Erec Toso.
Online, you’ll find intriguing poems, truly stunning artwork, and a gripping prose piece about SIDS by Steven P. Arthur.
If you stop by the University of Arizona Poetry Center Library, you can pick up your latest copy of Rain Shadow Review – you should, it’s free and it’s good reading.
If you’ve ever been in jail or prison, you could become a contributor to this magazine. Visit online at https://rainshadowreview.com/ or mail a COPY of your best writing to:
