“The wide range of works that we get is evident in this year’s volume. Among the included works, we have a poem translated from Russian, a poem by local writer Carol Catanzariti, a humorous poem by Californian Patrick D. McKay, and a short story about an African-American prize-fighter in the early 1920s by Cedelas Hall,” said Patrice M. Wilson, editor of Hawai‘i Pacific Review.

“ Literature, in addition to all of the arts, is one of the strongest indicators that life, love, the soul are all thriving on this planet, despite its hardships and mysteries, or perhaps even because of them,” said HPU President Chatt G. Wright.

The cover features art by Roger Whitlock, called A Stormy Day in Hale‘iwa. He is a signature member of the Hawai‘i Watercolor Society and the Northwest Watercolor Society. He has had 16 solo shows and is currently teaching the advanced watercolor class at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.
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, ranging from featured poetry, short stories, and personal essays. The newest edition, volume 19, includes the winning poems from HPU’s annual James Vaughan Award for Poetry competition.

Volume 19 of the Hawai‘i Pacific Review ($8.95) will be available at the HPU Bookstore [hpu.edu/bookstore] in two weeks and at all major bookstores, including Borders Books & Music; Waldenbooks; and Barnes & Noble, and its subsidiaries, amazon.com and chapters.com, by November.
