Claudia Carlson, who writes poetry but also has designed several Marsh Hawk Press books, has just received a design award! She had been co-designing, with Peter Selgin (talented cover illustrator and the editor of the journal as well), each of the five issues to date of the wonderful journal Alimentum: The Literature of Food. Alimentum just won in the in New York Book Show 2008 category of General Trade / Quality Paperback! Claudia had worked on both cover and interior. She will be feted deservedly at the awards reception on March 11t 2008. Alimentum is a magazine with poems, stories, non-fiction, interviews, and things that are clearly undefinable but always about food.

Eileen Tabios' THE LIGHT SANG AS IT LEFT YOUR EYES is reviewed by the Feminist Review. Click on excerpt below for the whole review:

Traversing between these modes, the text explores mourning, political ambivalence and accountability, sexuality, international sex trade, pensive pastoral scenery, and hope. // There is no doubt Tabios is a contemporary master of poetry. Her playful yet serious musings betray experience, reflexive meditation, and vulnerability. In the appendix, Tabios wishes to create poetry that inspire readers to seek knowledge about the Philippines, as do students who learn French, Greek, or Latin whilst studying the canon. This book is successful in doing so.
