Featuring readings by Mark Russell, Gabriel Blackwell, and Brad Rosen Portland Review invites you to join us in celebrating the release of our Fall 2013 Transitions issue, showcasing a range of excellent new nonfiction from Portland and the wider world, as well as fiction, poetry, visual art and reviews of new releases from Portland authors. We welcome you to celebrate with us at a launch party and reading. Come hear Mark Russell (God is Disappointed in You), Gabriel Blackwell (The Natural Dissolution of Fleeting-Improvised-Men: The Last Letter of H. P. Lovecraft) and several other local authors read their work, pick up an advance copy of the issue, and celebrate Portland Review’s place in the rich Portland literary community. Operated out of Portland State University’s MFA in Creative Writing and Master’s in Book Publishing programs, Portland Review has been publishing exceptional work by established and up-and-coming artists and writers since 1956.
