“I think I can, I think I can!”
Welcome to Porter Gulch Review 2012!
Porter Gulch Review is proud to be releasing its 27th anniversary edition this year. Each spring semester, a special section of David Sullivan's English 1B class at Cabrillo College acts as the editorial board and production team of PGR. Hun- dreds of poetry, short story, screenplay, art and photography submissions from lo- cal writers, artists, teachers, students and other creative persons are sifted through each year. The process can be very time consuming, but the hope is that the final selections will be reflect the diversity of the audience and include many aspects of the human condition which readers can connect with.
Thank you to everyone who submitted their work to PGR for the 2012 edition. We were overwhelmed with worthy submissions and had a big pool of creative talent to pull from. Congratulations to all the authors & artists who are being published this year! A big thank you also goes out to the production crew for all their time and hard work, without which this publication would not be possible.
Are you intrigued yet? Good because now it's your chance to be published! Whatever your medium, if you can get it on paper, we want to see it.
