Welcome to the
/ Troy / Upstate NY issue of Hobo
Camp Review! I’ve wanted to do a hometown issue for a while, but it has never
been more prescient to do so, at least from a personal standpoint. When I moved
back to the Albany area not long
ago, I didn’t know what kind of lit scene I would find, especially after being
used to NYC’s continual string of readings, signings, talks, workshops, and
conferences. But I’m elated by what I discovered.
This issue is the smallest of fractions of the talent I’ve witnessed in the area, with whole circles of writers and reading regulars I haven’t come close to meeting. But I hope it affords you a fascinating and inspiring cross-section of what the Capital Region offers, and that you enjoy the poems, interviews, art, comedy, and reviews in this issue. It’s nice to be home, and it’s even better to see it thriving.
See you down the road…
