San Pedro River Review Literary Journal        
 
Submission period: January 1st to January 31st, 2018   
 
Theme: MUSIC. Good, bad and uncertain: buskers and other street musicians, philharmonics, festivals and concerts, juke boxes, blues & jazz players, chanteuses & torch singers, bar karaoke, night clubs, mariachi, dirges, odes to common things, hymns, Gregorian chants, choruses, cantors, choirs, carousels, creepy music from the ice cream truck, flamenco, lone players, fugues, serenades, dancing and dance floors, fair & carnival music, organ grinders, sounds that may strike one as musical — like train and fog horns. Radio music, 8-tracks & cassettes, turntables, music stores, music lessons that went bad, garage bands, amateur players. The music you loved on late nights alone. 
 
San Pedro River Review is an international perfect-bound journal of poetry and art. It is named for the ancient river that flows north from the mountains of SonoraMexico, into Arizona. We have a strong interest in poetry of Place and the relationship between lives and landscapes. Most importantly, we seek a sense of concision, an economy of language with a keen focus on voice and image. Each fall, we make nominations for the Pushcart Prize.
