The Orange Room Review

Accessible poetry of substance


April 1st, 2007 Issue

Welcome to the 5th issue of The Orange Room Review. Enjoy.

***Dedicated to Edward O. Knowlton***

Edward passed away on March 22, 2007. He edited Red Owl, a biannual poetry magazine published in Portsmouth, NH since 1995. I received my 2nd acceptance letter from Mr. Knowlton and appeared in several issues of Red Owl. Edward was very, very generous and will be missed. May he rest in peace.
