More About SRPR

"We do feature an Illinois Poet every issue, but other than that we are not partial in any way to local or regional poets," writes editor Kirstin Hotelling Zona. "Today, SRPR revises its long-standing fascination with regionalism by celebrating a poetics of emplacement: writing that reveals the borders of our comfort zones as sites of connection rather than irreconcilable difference."

Established 1976.
