Literary magazine released

by Kalamalama staff


HPU has announced the island-wide release in November of its annual literary magazine Hawai‘i Pacific Review, volume 17. The University’s most recent collection includes outstanding written works by contributors from Hawai‘i and countries around the world.

“I am especially pleased with the diversity represented in this year’s Hawai‘i Pacific Review,” said Patrice Wilson, editor. “We have poems and shorts stories set in Hawai‘i, Harlem, Yugoslavia in the 1950s, Kandahar, and Native America…. We also have a great diversity in theme, ranging from the experience of immigrants to artworks.”


The cover features a photograph by Shuzo Uemoto called Keawe and Haole Koa-Leahi. Born in Hiroshima, Japan, Uemoto is a respected photographer with 20 exhibitions since 1979, including one in 2002 at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum that is now permanent. His work was seen in the 2001 Artists of Hawaii Exhibition; with the 1998 Japanese Contemporary Artists at the Japanese Cultural Center Gallery; and the Thirty Years of the Honolulu Advertiser Gallery exhibition, among others.

Hawai‘i Pacific Review, which was created in 1986 as a forum for student creative writing, has since widened its authorship to include written pieces from contributors from Hawai‘i, the mainland, and all over the world. Submissions to the magazine have swelled to 1,000 annually, and include poetry, short stories and personal essays. The newest edition includes the winning and honorable mention poems from HPU’s annual James Vaughan Award for Poetry competition.

Volume 17 of the Hawai‘i Pacific Review ($8.95) will be available in November at the HPU Bookstore [] and at all major bookstores, including Borders Books & Music; Waldenbooks; and Barnes & Noble, and its subsidiaries,, and Call 544-1108 for more information or e-mail
