Publisher's description: Meat for Tea: The Valley Review is committed to providing a space in which emerging artists appear between the same covers as very established artists in the hopes of providing a "leg up," so to speak. This journal is not attached to a larger institution and as such is free of the PC constraints that can shackle publications that are so attached. This allows us to produce a somewhat edgy publication with a punk aesthetic tempered with real virtuosity.
We have published work from many celebrated writers and artists, such as David Yow, Jane Hudson, John Lurie, Dorian Sagan, Jessamyn Smythe, Anne Serling, Richard Kostelanetz, and numerous others. We are honored to have received a favorable review on NewPages.
