New in Town: The Hummingbird Review

There's a new review in town, I mean, right down the street. Literally. It's an online journal straight out of Laguna Woods. Check it out - The Hummingbird Review.

Hat tip for this one goes to Daniel Olivas over at la bloga. He writes:

◙ INTRODUCING THE PREMIER ISSUE OF THE HUMMINGBIRD REVIEW: The Hummingbird Review promotes fine writing by publishing both new writers and fully established literary figures. The review is committed to portraying the beauty and challenges of life—the full human experience—through literature and art, and promotes cross-cultural writing in all forms. The first issue is now available. As the publisher, Charlie Redner, notes: “Our name was lifted straight from the title of the 2005 book, The Hummingbird’s Daughter written by Luis Alberto Urrea, a valued contributor and the inspiration for this review’s emergence.” Check it out and submit!

They have launched a website at:

You can review the first issue's contributors which include Achy Obejas, Martin Espada, Daniel Olivas, Luis Alberto Urrea and others - and, because it's entirely online, you can read it there too.

The summer/fall issue of The Hummingbird Review came off press in early August. More Espada, Urrea plus Michael Blake (Dances w/Wolves) Michael Shrieve, Santana's drummer from Woodstock and Dr. Dean Nelson, founder of the journalism school and annual Symposium by-the-Sea, Point Loma Nazarene University. Dr. Eulert, a trailblazer for haiku in America. Said Leghlid, a Moroccan born writer tells of his Amazigh (Berber) roots and the pending loss of his ancient culture., B&, and Open Books Press.
P.S. thanks for the big launch plug. How may we return the favor?
