March is National Poetry Month, encouraging writing activities throughout the country. Among the Portland Room’s local periodical collections is the complete and ongoing run of The Café Review- now in its 21st year!
Pictured below is Steve Luttrell, founder and publishing editor of the Review. Last year, he was named the City of Portland’s Poet Laureate. The photo was taken here in the Portland Room, as Steve kindly gave his certificate to the Archives’ collections.
Pictured here is the 20th Anniversary issue. The Café Review continues to encourage local poetry-writing, and invites written and visual-art contibutions.
