The MacGuffin Winter 2023 (38.3) issue features Lynne Thompson’s Poet Hunt 27 commentary and selections: Grand Prize Winner Judy Brackett Crowe and Honorable Mentions Abby Caplin and Sam Ferrante. Leaving Poet Hunt 27 behind, The MacGuffin gives readers a look ahead to 2023’s Poet Hunt 28, guest judged by Barbara Crooker, with a five-poem spread from the judge-to-be. The issue is rounded out with an eclectic collection of prose: from Carolyn Watson’s Hitchcockian “Hag,” to Scott Ragland’s postmodern World War II short “Wings,” to Carolyn Highland’s “Echoes,” and Gigi Cheng’s masterful essay “The difference between Chinese and English.”
