Issue 4 is here! We hustled to get it done in time for AWP 2014 in Seattle, and it came straight from the presses the day before we boarded our cross-country flights to the 11,000-writer extravaganza and sprawling bookfair. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table and picked up a copy or subscription.
We’re really proud of this issue that features fantastic stories by David James Poissant (an old MFA classmate who has his first collection just out!), Helen Phillips (whose flash collection And Yet They Were Happy we loved), and Amy Bloom (Amy Bloom!!!!!!!!!!).
And look at that cover. Look at it! We love the artwork by Mark Vollenweider that features an image from Helen Phillips’ story in this issue.
If you’re teaching a fiction workshop this fall, this issue would be a great resource for your revision unit (if we do say so ourselves).
On the horizon: perhaps you’ll be seeing us in The Boston Globe soon. That’s right. Keep your eyes peeled.
And looking ahead to our next issue, we have an all-poetry issue planned that will be edited by the wildly talented duo of Lisa Ciccarello and Donald Dunbar.
Thanks, as ever, for your support!
