I’m pleased to announce that the poet Barbara Jane Reyes will be guest-editing the Spring Supplement 2010 issue of Blue Fifth Review.

This special issue, appearing in May, will be thematic in design – Code-switching: Poets working in multiple languages – and will be divided into two sections: poetry and essay.

Since all the work for this issue will be solicited, no unsolicited submissions will be considered.

Barbara Jane Reyes is the author of Gravities of Center (Arkipelago Books, 2003) and Poeta en San Francisco (Tinfish Press, 2005), which received the James Laughlin Award of the Academy of American Poets, and Diwata (forthcoming from BOA Editions, 2010). She has released two chapbooks as well - Easter Sunday (Ypolita Press) and Cherry (Portable Press at Yo-Yo Labs).

Looking forward to this exciting work.
