Homeboy Review #1
The Homeboy Review is a literary magazine published by the Homeboy Press. The inaugural issue (160 pages) features work by both established and new writers, including works by Luis Rodriguez, Kerry Madden, Naomi Shihab Nye and Fr. Gregory Boyle, S.J. The homegrown poets at Homeboy Industries have their own section called 130 West Bruno Street. The poems in this section mainly derive from the Creative Writing class at Homeboy Industries, now in its third year. A section called Art and Justice features photos and poetry by young poets living in Prichard, Alabama, one of the poorest neighborhoods in Southern Alabama. The Homeboy Review is published annually. The next issue will appear in April of 2010.
