We are proud to release the first issue of Up The River, a new journal of poetry, art & photography by Albany Poets Press celebrating the best in the arts not just from upstate New York, but from around the world.
This first issue of the journal was the brainchild of local poets and artists Jill Crammond and Keith Spencer and was edited by Carissa Haberland, Mary Panza, and Thom Francis.
You can purchase your own copy Issue One from Amazon.com for just $10.00.
With each new issue of Up the River we wish to showcase original work from new and established poets, artists and photographers both in print and online on our website. Our approach is to mix new technology and good old fashioned print publishing with Up The River. Poets that have multiple poems accepted for this issue have one poem in the print edition and all of their work on the website. In the future we will even feature videos and audio as well as visual art as a companion to the poet’s words.
