Up and Therefore Out

The next issue of Terrain.org: A Journal of the Built & Natural Environments is coming up, launching September 10. That means I'll be out of pocket as it moves to publication, so I may not be able to post much on this blog between now and then.

However, here's (mostly) what's coming in the "Metropolitan Mosaic" issue:
  • Guest editorial by Denver mayor John Hickenlooper
  • Poetry by Marianne Poloskey, John Horvath, Jr., Charlotte Matthews, J.D. Smith, Michael Vaughn, Margarita Engle, Yvette A. Schnoeker-Shurb, Jake Adam York, and Lynn Strongin
  • Essays by David R. Foote ("Hazelhurst at 75: A Culture of Conservation and Service" with a historical slideshow), Carolyn Steinhoff Smith ("Through the Dragon's Mouth: Exploring the City Museum of St. Louis"), and William R. Stimson ("Wu - Kuo Yu")
  • Fiction by David Watmough, Edward M. Turner, Tom Straw, and Steven Mayoff
  • Articles by Michael Leccese ("Denver's Stapleton: Green Urban Infill for the Masses?"), Martha Works and Thomas Harvey ("Can the Way We Eat Change Metropolitan Agriculture? The Portland Example"), and Harrison Bright Rue ("Public Involvement Best Practices: Linking Land Use and Transportation")
  • Reviews of Riverfall, poems by Simmons B. Buntin; Crow's Range: An Environmental History of the Sierra Nevada by David Beesley; and Canyon Spirits: Beauty and Power in the Ancestral Puebloan World, photos by John L. Ninneman and essays by Stephen H. Lekson and J. McKim Malville
  • An interview with Terry Tempest William, author of Refuge and other outstanding environmental literature
  • Artwork by sculptor, painter, and muralist Stephanie Johnson
  • UnSprawl case study: Glenwood Park in Atlanta

Look for it September 10 at www.terrain.org, though I'm certain to announce it here, as well!
