Issue 5 goes to print!

Date: January 11, 2019
On Thursday, January 10, we sent our newest issue yet to the printers—and we’re so in love. So it’s time for our annual cover art reveal!


The art on the cover of Issue 5 is a painting called simply “Doe,” by Canadian artist Chris Austin. We just love the simultaneously serene and radioactive glow of this painting. We strongly believe the gorgeous writing in this issue is brings this same ghostly-transcendent but firmly present voice in its approach to both disaster and beauty.

Inside the issue is brand-new poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and literary shade from Lauren K. Alleyne, Aldo Amparán, E. Kristin Anderson, John Andrews, Matthew James Babcock, Alyse Bensel, Justin Bigos, Tommye Blount, Brooke Champagne, Alan Chazaro, Emily Cinquemani, Kevin Clouther, Julia Kolchinsky Dasbach, Oliver de la Paz, Denise Duhamel, Kelly Dulaney, Catherine Edmunds, Stevie Edwards, Kate Gaskin, Joanna Gordon, Kyle Hemmings, Lucas Jacob, Sally J. Johnson, Jane Kim, Ben Loory, Suvi Mahonen, Alicia Mountain, Miguel Murphy, Andy Powell, Kevin Prufer, Dean Rader, Scott Ragland, Nancy Reddy, Phoebe Reeves, Aaron Smith, Alison Stine, Matthew Thorburn, Maureen Thorson, Milla van der Have, Kelly Garriott Waite, Joanna White, Patrick Whitfill, and Claire Yoo. Coming in at 193 pages, this new issue is packed with incredible work from both American and international writers that will bring you back for several re-reads.
