From the Editor:
Happy new decade! Our first work of 2020 is one that showcases just how much ground we can cover as literary citizens, writers and collaborators. Our contributors for this issue are from Miami and Seoul, are poetic icons and emerging voices. Take a moment to read to the contributors’ bios to get the best sense of who’s helped us create something wonderful. Special thanks to Assistant Managing Editor Michael Sheriff, Fiction Editor Jason Katz, Poetry Editor Terin Weinberg, and Nonfiction Editor Bri Griffith for their dedication and generosity – the best part about this issue is that it reflects their always-compelling taste. Cheers to more meaning-making, together.
