Rio Grande Valley International Poetry Festival

The Rio Grande Valley International Poetry Festival, established in 2008, is a four-day poetry festival in deep South Texas held concurrently in two countries on the last full weekend in April. You don't need to register in order to submit to our anthology, Boundless. We feed you dinner on Saturday night as part of the Poetry Pachanga--the event that started it all. V.I.P.F. is a program of 
Art That Heals, Inc., and  El Zarape Press, with sponsorship from by Creative Alignment Consulting and the McAllen Chamber of Commerce and welcomes poets from around the world.

I am a professor teaching courses in the Biological Psychology and the Biology of Learning, Memory, and Cognition at a university in Texas. I have been writing for more than 50 years and am fortunate to have been recently published in Quirk (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014), an annual literary journal published by the UIW Press and by Voices de la Luna (2013, 2014, 2015) a quarterly literary journal published in San Antonio, Texas.
