St. Petersburg Review, Issue #1 (216 pages) contains 48 pieces (poetry, fiction, and nonfiction) by 34 writers; 28, or 58 percent of the pieces are in translation, and 16 of the authors(47 percent) are non-American, many, in this issue, Russian writers who teach or lecture at St. Petersburg Summer Literary Seminars (SLS). The first issue is enhanced by its symbiotic relationship with SLS. Besides providing an all-star list of Russian and American writers for SPR editors to solicit, SLS served as the venue for the journal’s launch, and provided a copy to each workshop participant. In the first two weeks of SPR’s launch, over 200 copies were sold and/or distributed. Unsolicited submissions of fiction, poetry, essays, and plays will be accepted September 1 through January 15 of each year.

Parnassus Lives
August 12th, 2007 by Jeremy Axelrod for the Kenyon Review
Parnassus: Poetry in Review will not be closing shop with Volume 30, after all. Until recently, financial woes made that round, impressive number seem like a sensible finale for the journal’s magnificent run. As Meg Galipault noted on KR Blog [Kenyon Review Blog], Willard Spiegelman wrote in the Wall Street Journal about its “commitment to intelligence and beautiful writing” — an achievement that’s sadly not enough to fill the till. But sometimes poetry does make things happen, or at least poetry critics do. A very generous reader of the Wall Street Journal saw Spiegelman’s article and offered to fully fund Parnassus for two more years. In the last few months, many magazines and newspapers have lamented the end of Parnassus and praised its decades of excellence. Nobody spoke too soon. When the donation materialized, it was an utter surprise for everyone. [Read the rest on KR Blog]
