Colorado Poets Center E-Words Issue #5

What is The Purgatoire?

We’ve added The Purgatoire, Trini

dad State Junior College’s literary magazine, to our list of Colorado poetry outlets. Katie Kingston co-founded the magazine where the two were teaching at Trinidad State and Chelo Ludden later revived it “and is doing a great job,” she says.

The magazine is published once a year and showcases local writers and artists, which includes students, and current and past residents of the Trinidad area. The cost is $5.00 plus tax. You can hit our link under “Colorado Magazines” or go to:

The magazine is currently calling for students, faculty, and community members to submit essays, short fiction, poetry, photographs and drawings by January 30, 2009. Those interested may check out submission guidelines on the link provided by the TSJC website.
