Our newest issue, #25, is here! We had a fantastic launch party to celebrate! Read more about the issue (including samples) here!
Also, a new feature we’re very excited about: all non-contest submissions are considered for our $200 Staff Choice Award: an accepted piece chosen by our staff as best embodying two things we love and respect about writing: stylistic ambition and social engagement. One author each issue will receive this award, announced with the issue’s release in May. Our inaugural winner is Laura Ruby for her poem “Endnotes to My Posthumous Memoirs.” Congratulations, Laura!
The story “The Red Bump,” by Anu Kandikuppa (published in issue 21) received a Special Mention in the Pushcart Prize 2021 volume. It’s a great story by a great writer — and shows that we have good taste. 🙂
Former contributor Theodore Carter turned his story “Sonya’s Insatiable Hunger” (issue 14) into a podcast. Listen to it here!
