Welcome to Southwest Family Magazine. We are excited to bring you a vibrant, new publication to capture your heart and mind with ideas, information and art to use and peruse.
Sometimes, when we are focusing on an issue that is especially interesting and complex, we may present several articles, or the whole issue, on a single topic, with variations on the theme.
Southwest Family’s themes will sometimes will be sweeping and edgy. We believe our purpose is to question and to illuminate, to speak the unspoken, as well as to entertain.
On our “Southwest Family Poetry” page we are proud to present poems by Gene Po Wong, Trey Peeler, Carolyn Schum, Susan Laufman, Nancy Connington and Peg Vance Millar. On the following pages, we are delighted to present creative non-fiction by Ernestine Hill, Merryl Piper, Frank Piper and Fritzy Dean.
We expect the magazine, with your input, to become a living document of our times– one which will grow and change with its readership, and occasionally put some new ideas into the world.
