Under the Gum Tree Summer 2023 issue opens with a Letter from the Editor titled “Unimaginable Resiliency” in which Janna Marlies Maron writes, “By the time you read this it will be nearly one year since I experienced a major relapse of MS in August 2022 that caused debilitating neuropathy throughout my body.” And further contemplates, “I continue to be committed to personal storytelling. If there is one thing I know for sure it’s that our stories always demonstrate an unimaginable resiliency—even what I’ve shared in this letter I never would have imagined that I’d be surviving, until I actually did.”
Contributor writers to this issue include Kristina Ryan Tate, Ali Saperstein, Kathryn Leehane, Suzanne Lewis, Tawnya Gibson, and Alex Noelke. Artwork from Ryan Taylor and Seth Pitt are also featured in this issue.
