Our Thanks to Past SHR Editors

Janice Dabney, Poetry
Janice is a native Californian who is enjoying retirement in Mountain View with her partner Lorraine. Her poetry has appeared in numerous journals and Dutch Poet Press recently published her book entitled The Comfort of Potatoes. She enjoys the chance to interact with other poets in her capacity as The Sand Hill Review Poetry Editor, a role she has held since the inaugural issue.


Joyce Savre, Art
I came to painting by way of poetry. In the process of writing and editing poems I became so absorbed by language, I felt I needed to ground myself and picked up the brush. Everything I learned about the process of writing pertains also to painting and collage. Writing itself becomes the subject of the work in my “Handwriting” series.
