Our Eclipse Issue

Dear Readers,

Given the total solar eclipse that was visible across much of North America this month, the abundance of work we receive, our desire to uplift vibrant voices and nourish literary community— this April we’re publishing a bonus issue.

Taking our cue from celestial phenomenon, the eclipse issue features paradoxes, loss, letting go, darkness and light. It emphasizes that which isn’t as it first seemed. Our poets are exploring transitions, spiritual yearning, unjust systems.  Hiddenness, and what’s beneath the surface.

Thank you for the gift of your time, for reading, for contributing, for imagining what could be amid all that isn’t.

–Lauren K. Carlson
