Issue 4 goes to print!
The art on the cover of issue 4 is a photograph called “Children Running in Backlight (Dozza, Italy),” by Italian artist Claudio Cricca. We just love the vibrant color, motion, and light captured in this photograph. We strongly believe the incredible writing in this issue has these same luminous qualities.
Inside the issue is brand-new poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and literary shade from Hussain Ahmed, Derrick Austin, Jan Beatty, Nicky Beer, Ron Currie, Jr., Christopher DeWeese, Chelsea Dingman, Piotr Florczyk, Berry Grass, Gillian Haines, Barbara Hamby, Leslie Harrison, Eleanor Hooker, Isabelle Hughes, Rosemary Jones, Julie Kane, Jenna Le, Jenn Leiker, James McCorkle, Michelle McGurk, Jessica Murray, Maria Nazos, Lucy Palmer, Alison Pelegrin, Ayesha Raees, Monica Isabel Restrepo, Alan Shapiro, SM Stubbs, Ellen Davis Sullivan, Anya Vostrova, Julie Marie Wade, Brian Phillip Whalen, Lesley Wheeler, Annie Julia Wyman, and Natalie Young. At a spine-cracking 253 pages, this new issue breaks our Cherry Tree records for biggest issue on the books!
The issue is officially released on February 15, 2018 and will be shipped out to contributors and subscribers at that time. We will also debut Issue 4 at the AWP Conference in Tampa from March 8-10. We’ll have copies available in the Bookfair at the Rose O’Neill Literary House booth #717, along with the rest of our Literary House Press publications and swag.
And if you haven’t already, today is the perfect day to subscribe! Starting today, all new subscriptions will begin with Issue 4.
