Luisa Igloria: Honorable Mention in Potomac Review Poetry Contest 2010
Potomac Review is a yearly publication that reflects its people, landscapes, habitats, values and ethos. In significant ways, it embodies Montgomery College's dedication to the arts and humanities, and has enabled us to showcase some of the talent at the College, particularly from our art classes. Potomac Review publishes a lively blend of writers and artists from the region and beyond.
