CONGRATULATIONS TO HAWAI'I REVIEW
Congratulations to the staff at Hawai'i Review: Anjoli Roy, Kelsey Amos, Dave Scrivner, No'u Revilla, and Donovan Kūhio Colleps whose Spring 2015 issue of UH Mānoa’s Hawai‘i Review was recognized as one of the top 10 “ACP Best of Show” literary magazines in the nation at the ACP/CMA Fall National College Media Convention in Austin, Texas.
The Editors write collectively:
Located as we are in this vast and powerful Pacific Ocean, we at Hawaiʻi Review acknowledge the various ways bodies of water connect with and engage each other. For issue 81, we gather at the muliwai, which, in Hawaiian language, signifies the place where fresh waters and ocean meet, where the tide thrusts, and salt ebbs and flows. We gather at the river mouth. What happens here? What is said, dreamed, challenged, and undone here?
For this special issue, we sought place-based pieces that commit to bodies of water, particularly rivers, streams, and oceans. While some may consider the theme of muliwai somewhat expansively in terms of convergences and collisions, meeting places and points of departure, we showcase works that address the environmental impact of climate change, including the effects of rising ocean levels, the fragile state of ground water, and more.
