Shō Premiere Issue
Poems for Shō’s Premiere Issue were solicited and selected by founding editor, Sita Martin. Shortly thereafter she succumbed to a battle with cancer and Johnny Cordova stepped in to oversee production and cover design.
Shō’s Premiere Issue was released in Spring 2002 and consisted of sixty-eight poems by nine poets, as well as a small selection of artwork. The cover art is an original painting by Anna Tredeau.
