Beltway, a quarterly on-line journal of poetry by authors who live or
work in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area, inaugurates its
first issue. Issue One features a generous selection of work by four
authors: Richard McCann, director of the graduate program in creative
writing at The American University; Christina Daub, director of the Plum
Writers Retreats; Merrill Leffler, publisher of Dryad Press; and Valerie
Jean, winner of the Artscape Poetry Award.
Beltway highlights the healthy diversity of poetry styles within the
nations capitol. Each issue will present a selection of poems by four
or five authors, ranging from well established, nationally-known poets
to those who have yet to publish a first book. Three issues each year
will be edited by Kim Roberts, author of The Wishbone Galaxy and
recipient of grants from the DC Commission on the Arts and the National
Endowment for the Humanities. A fourth issue will be guest edited.
A Poetry News section, updated monthly, lists book publications by DC
authors, new issue releases from DC literary journals, and area
workshops and readings. Beltway authors are paired with visual artists
from the region, whose works are reproduced on-line.
Beltway is located at www.washingtonart.com, a web site designed and
maintained by painter Kathy Keler. For more information, please send an
