I've never traveled much but the Pacific Northwest is one area on my wishlist. I enjoy the Nisqually Delta Review because it originates in a beautiful area of Washington State, and I admire the editor's poetry and art. The NDR editor's name is familiar to formalist and haiku poetry circles: CarrieAnn Thunell. Through her own poetry and art, and the poems of featured poets, Ms. Thunell shares the wonders of nature around her.
Now I'll be honest. My ability to create formal poetry and haiku leaves much to be desired, although I enjoy reading them both. I'm thankful that somewhere between the first and second edition of NDR, Ms. Thunell decided to accept submissions of free form poetry. Now poets like Tom Sheehan and me :) have a chance at being featured poets too, along with those accomplished in haiku and formalist styles.
I haven't seen the Second Edition yet but the first was a standout. The poetry was of varied styles and well worth reading, and the pen and ink drawings a pleasant bonus. Ms. Thunell is still publishing on a shoestring so can't afford to give complimentary copies to submitting poets. I'm hoping that will change as her subscription base grows. Anyone interested in submitting or subscribing to NDR should check the website at: http://nisquallydeltareview.bravehost.com/ and see what you think.
