Issue Fifteen, May 2024

These poems and fictions, like my life at the moment, are about change. Resisting it. Surrendering to it. Massaging it and its outcomes.

One is about getting revenge for other versions of you because you couldn’t get revenge for yourself. One is about the specter of grief and the art of letting go. One is about listening to the world we found amid the buzz of the world we’ve made. One is about becoming an alien and falling in/out/in love. One is about the powers of love, admiration, and becoming. One is about being taken and choosing to stay. One is about the travaux a woman survives and who she’s meant to be afterward. One is a force of nature and/or a woman scorned. One is sci-fi synesthesia. One is about the journey, what you lose to embark and what you find along the way.

In this issue, you will find fiction by Madi Haab, N. R. M. Roshak, Rin Willis, Avra Margariti, Natalia Theodoridou, and Matt Tighe, poetry by Emmie Christie, Jess Gofton, Elizabeth Shack, and Sofia Ezdina, and short fiction reviews by Danai Christopoulou. The cover art is by Lauren Raye Snow.
