Just a quick note to say I have a new publication online.
Something like two years ago, a friend of mine in Wisconsin, Russ Brickey, had the idea to start a regional literary magazine, which he decided to call Driftless Review after the geological region where our little town lived. He also kindly enlisted my help to bounce early ideas off. We hammered out a few details and then Russ was off and running, and he had the makings of what looked like a pretty cool little `zine. Then, when my wife and I decided to move to Abu Dhabi, Russ asked me to serve as a kind of “foreign correspondent,” writing a column on the arts and literature of our new home country.
For a while, Russ was working hard to finish his PhD, but he’s recently become Dr. Brickey, and with a little more time to devote to the `zine, he’s got the thing up and running, and my first column (which I’d actually written a long while ago) is online.
