The Up The River launch reading has become an annual Albany Word Fest tradition as we kick off our week of poetry and spoken word events with the contributors of latest issue of UTR reading their work. This year hosts Mary Panza and Kevin Peterson welcomed Malcolm Willison, Howard Kogan, Nancy Klepsch, Dennis Rush, R.M. Engelhardt, Tom Riley, Cecele Allen Kraus, Alan Catlin, Thom Francis, Karen Schoemer, Robert Phelps, and Frank Robinson to the mic.

You can read more about this event on Dan Wilcox’s blog and if you want to submit to Up The River, Issue Four go to the UTR submissions page to find out how.
