The Tishman Review quarterly is available online as a PDF, but it's also wonderful to hold this full-size, 8.5 x 11 perfect bound print copy. The pages provide generous space for art and poetry, with prose cut to two columns for easier reading. The gorgeous cover art Of Skin and Earth by Stephen Linsteadt in just the invitation readers need to continue on inside.
The theme for New Madrid Winter 2016 is "Evolving Islands" and features a selection of essays, poetry, and fiction in response to this theme. The cover art is courtesy of NASA, "Eluthera Island, Bahamas, 2002."
In keeping with Creative Nonfiction's theme "Let's Talk About the Weather," this cover image comes from artist and designer Mark Nystrom's "wind drawings" series. Driven by the weather, this series is a drawing process Nystrom developed using weather instruments and custom electronics that collect wind data that is then digitally interpreted. Nystrom's images accompany each essay in this issue of CNF.
