I thank our contributors for helping DCR make the move to a more reliable format, and subscribers and others for following what I hope continues with fresh expression as we go. As a practical matter, there are no plans to publish a printed version of Dry Crik Review, as the cost of printing, layout, marketing, subscriptions and deadlines don’t make sense at this time. However, in light of the technological advances in the past few years, anything is possible, but with this current presentation, there is no urgency to recoup costs as all that we have invested is a little time.
I will be soliciting new contributors in the months ahead, feeling that we have a pretty solid base from which to gather contemporary expression from the American West. Near term, new offerings may be sporadic as we begin to focus our attention on weaning and shipping calves.
Currently, our policy remains that we will not accept nor consider unsolicited submissions. We will, however, accept new publications for review, and consider unsolicited reviews for inclusion in this format. Thank-you. – JCD
Much has changed since that first saddle-stapled issue of Dry Crik Review in 1990, yet the lack of a format for contemporary hands-on expression remains. Here, we hope to present that venue electronically, an eclectic site that offers poetry, prose and potentially other mediums and forms of art from rural cultures, with particular prejudice for contemporary expression from the American West.
Since the last published issue in 1994, I have truly missed the personal connections, especially the excitement of inspiration, from past contributors. I trust you will find unique and grounded works within the following pages. To begin this experiment in its new form, Dry Crik Review will not consider nor accept any unsolicited manuscripts or material at this time. Thank you.
