Letter From the Editor (Issue 4)

Dear Readers,

Welcome to our fourth issue, a deep dive to the other side of usual. To discover the long past, speak the discourse of the senses, and taste the distance possible in someone else’s words is a joy. We have selected work from nineteen writers who create strange, overgrown worlds in clean and controlled ways, making transit through those worlds a rich and realized journey.

From the tight disorder of Dan Gutstein’s “I Depreciate That” to the fantastic displays in Susan Frith’s “Hollow-Cut” and J. Bowers’s “Lady, The Mind-Reading Mare,” to Ivan de Monbrison’s astonishing little graveyard: here, the mind must travel with its guidebook tightly-clutched.

As always, the journal was designed to be held, bent, folded, touched, and loved. Read a review of two outstanding books, Matthew Siegel’s Blood Work and Chloe Honum’s The Tulip-Flame, in our new feature The Genuine. And don’t miss the latest answers in our 5 Questions for Poets series all the way at the back of the book, with insight from Diana Khoi Nguyen, Kelly Cressio-Moeller, Martha Silano, and Sara Eliza Johnson.

- Christine Gosnay

Letter From The Editor (Issue 3)

Dear Readers,

Welcome to our third issue, where we take belonging and position to task. The voices in these poems, stories, and essays question what it means to long for place, and how to create it. What if the definitions of home, the locations of the past and ancestry, have been refuted, moved, lost? What succeeds them? Here are twenty-five writers who create huge new fields for expression of metaphysical inquiry with humor, delicacy, brutal understanding, and style.

A subversion of category defines much of the work found here. Truth and meaning, art and genre, are suspicious subjects; to deal with them, we turn to keen, curious writers. They question their subjects in turn with reverence and dismissal, until a corporeal understanding - one that defies description - quickly fills the spaces. A poem moves on the page in ways that escape explanation; a story walks its subject up an impossible stairway and returns with three more. And did I mention the fishing tales?
