“Disarm” is a literary call to lay down our weapons. The writings in our Spring 2019 issue ask questions: How does violence creep into our lives? Will we ever disarm each other? Kazim Ali’s bittersweet poem “Pulse” explores what it’s like to gather “at the edge of the bright darkness of rain.” Christine Vines’ fantastic story “Redacted” reimagines the Fall from the vantage of Eve, “a difficult rib to extract,” her only missile a pinecone. Amy Collini, in her haunting essay “Magnum,” remembers a gun pointed at her. Plus the first-ever 2019 Witness Literary Awards! Don’t miss this heartbreaking and unforgettable issue.
