For our 40th anniversary, we encouraged submitters to highlight the current unique social & political climate of 2017-2018. The work we selected not only highlights this fact, but also showcases entertaining, thought-provoking, and forward thinking writing and art. Our edition includes interviews with the renowned poet and translator, Gail Wronsky, and also novelist and filmmaker, Chris Kraus.
This year's submission theme was "perspective." This issue also features an interview with Sue Clancy of Vancouver, Washington who submitted to our Dis(covering) Ability submission call. The journal is filled with Travel Cafe submissions for this year's "bliss" theme. I hope you enjoy the largest journal that SCJ has published, to date!
