And the winner is . . .

KERRY RUEF! We are very pleased to announce that Kerry's poem "What Is Possible, Traveling by Car," has been selected as the prize-winning poem in our (first) annual poetry contest by judge Neil Aitken.

Here's a teensy taste:

.. . . . . . . . . . . . . In the car:
all the little rattlings of wind
at the cracked windows,
of cases and bags scratching,
a dog snuffling.
A thread of music
from the boy's headphones escapes.

The woman smiles at the weight of
the hand, moves it back to the wheel.
But the man's hand is restless:

. . .

That's all you get! But for the entirety of the poem as well as other outstanding pieces of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, email now to order a copy of our next issue, due out in early May. And check back to keep posted on forthcoming announcements regarding

-- our new website

Temporary Home

This blogsite is our temporary home while our website undergoes an extreme makeover of epic proportions (shifted septums, pacemakers, calf implants, dialysis, a fancy wig, contacts -- the works).

This was our old home, and while it is a bit dated, it's a good source of info regarding recent issues and the history of Prism Review.

Updates will follow regarding our new home. ETA summer 2009.
