  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Issue 4, July 2014
This issue contains an exercise in title-body symmetry from Michael Martone, the second half of a correspondence by Jenny Boychuk, and two prose poems each from Rob MacDonald and Dillon J. Welch. Nick Ravo’s short-short combines joke and word play, and Erin J. Mullikin’s detective story is as genre-bending as it is mystical. We also feature two segments in translation from the Heian-era Japanese text The Sarashina Diary.

Willow Springs 74 features prose and poetry by Kim Addonizio, Melissa Kwasny, Jeffrey Bean, and Robert Wrigley.

And, frankly, it’s hard not to reach for that. It’s like having a gun; it’s like having a nuclear bomb.”
