Literary journal to make debut

Fleischmanns — A new literary journal, the brainchild of Shandaken native Paula Dutcher and Fleischmanns resident Dr. Bill Birns will be published late spring 2018.

The publication will feature various styles of poetry, prose, creative non-fiction, and even some digitally-formatted art, created by those who call these mountains home, or, perhaps wish they did. Theme of the premiere issue is “Home.”

“This area is deep and diverse and challenging, and so magical that Dr. Birns and I want to use our combined literary passions to help collect and deliver the myriad voices of the Catskills spiritual children,” says the journal’s editor,

Paula Dutcher, a Summa Cum Laude English-major graduate of SUNY New Paltz, now running her own, woman-owned, contracting and remodeling business.

Birns, the journal’s Publisher, is a retired Margaretville Central and Onteora High School English teacher, a local author and regional historian, who has lived in the mountains since 1971.

“Nobody knows the mountains like the people who are making our lives here,” Birns said. “The power of telling one’s story has gained nationwide attention lately. Paula and I hope that Mountain Arts Reviewoffers an opportunity and a spur for mountain folks to express stories in our own voices.”

If one has the desire to express through writing (or even art) and feels a connection to this geographic region send submissions to the email address listed below.

Mountain Arts Review, a brand new Catskill-centered literary journal, seeks submissions of poetry and short prose from locals and others who care about the Catskills and mountain life.

Please send submissions by February 1 to mountainartsreview@gmail.com
