Cobra Lily is a review of art and literature, focusing on the cultural and natural environs of Southwest Oregon. We seek to promote voices from this region, as well as voices outside the area which speak to the natural rhythms and experience of life here. Why Cobra Lily? The carnivorous pitcher plant exists most abundantly in Southwest Oregon. This native plant has distinctively adapted to thrive in our region. We draw inspiration from this plant because we dare to be as unique, publishing the diverse writers and artists of Southwest Oregon’s extraordinary landscape and culture.
