Cider Press Review is very excited to welcome two new additions to our editorial staff in 2021. Editor-in-Chief Beth McDermott will be taking charge of the editorial for CPR’s online journal and line of poetry books. Angela Dribben will join the publication as our dedicated Contributing Reviews editor.

Her poems have been published in journals such as Tupelo Quarterly, DIAGRAM, Terrain.org and Southern Humanities Review. Articles and reviews about art and ecology can be found in The Trumpeter, After the Art, American Book Review, and Kudzu House Quarterly, where she was also Poetry Editor. Beth holds degrees from Hope College, Purdue University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. She is currently an Assistant Professor of English at the University of St. Francis and lives in Frankfort, IL.

Her poetry, essays, and reviews can be found or are forthcoming in texas review press’ Virginia anthology, EcoTheo, Deep South, San Pedro River Review, Crab Creek Review, Crack the Spine, and others. Her reading and writing interests revolve around the close examination of cultural and institutional inequity. She is also fascinated by the relationships between visual art and text.
