Summer 2014

Dear Reader:

We’re pleased to bring you our Summer 2014 issue.

We’re happy you’ve joined us as we follow  April Erlich‘s exploration of an environment at once foreign and recognizable in her short story “Estranged Swimmers of a Polluted Sea.” In our poetry section,  Greg Overman’s poem “capitalization of rivers” features a cameo by Hemingway and Pushcart Prize finalist John Sibley Williams considers the subjectivity of perspective in “Stations.” We’re also happy to bring you poetry from Turkish writer Osman Konuk, translated by Ulku Tekten.

Continuing the commitment to publishing socially engaged work, non-fiction editor Shawn(ta) Smith interviews Rachel Mattson about her involvement in Librarians and Archivists with Palestine and efforts by archivists and librarians in the Occupied Territories to serve their communities and challenge the mainstream narrative that defines the Israeli-Palestinian relationship.

We continue our effort to bring over our archives to the new site we launched with our Winter 2014 issue. As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts on our latest issue at

Happy reading, and thanks for your continued support.

All best,
The Editors
August 2014
