Riverine: An Anthology of Hudson Valley Writers with Larry Carr (editor) and Selected Contributors

Riverine, an anthology of Hudson Valley Writers, edited by Laurence Carr. The 315-page anthology presents short stories, memoirs, microfiction, prose poems, and a wide range of poetry by over 75 Hudson Valley writers and poets, including Da Chen, Valerie Martin, Eamon Grennan, Laura Shaine Cunningham, Robert Polito, Nina Shengold and Donald Lev, among others.

Riverine's memoirs reflect life both in and outside the Hudson Valley. Intriguing short stories, both dark and light, explore a wide range of fictional characters. Micro-fiction (or flash fiction) brings the reader the razor-sharp genre of the short-short story and thought-provoking prose poems.

Two poetry sections offer a wide array of styles from a diverse group of poets. "Hudson Valley Views" focuses upon the landscape of the valley where the poets live. "Other Realms" journeys to the inner mindscape and takes the reader to places both real and imaginary.

Riverine was created by Laurence Carr,, a Hudson Valley writer who teaches in the SUNY New Paltz Creative Writing Program, and David Appelbaum, poet and publisher of Codhill Press and former editor of Parabola Magazine. Riverine is available through the Codhill website and from local bookstores. The book is priced at $20.
