Welcome to our 30th year. In the fall we sponsored our 22nd contest and had hundreds of entries, including our poetry winner, “Christopher Childers’s “Frames for My Father”; our winning story, “Scheherazade” by William Schwartz; and our winning essay “Peeling Back Skin,” by Rachel Furey. It is fitting that, as we look back on 30 years of publication, we should find that remembering the past has emerged as a major theme of this issue: cover art by Johntimothy Pizzuto; former Poet Laureate Ted Kooser; Ann Struthers, who was in our very first issue as well as this one; Kim Lozano; Melanie Krieps Mergen; Emily Arnason Casey; Louise Marburg, and more.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 76 Number 1, Winter 2018

This issue includes Wilhemina Condon’s “New Math.” Whether you loved mathematics or desperately appealed to the divine for merciful intervention as you faced a formidable foe, this essay is must read. Caitlin Kindervatter-Clark’s story “Well Behaved” is a snapshot of the staggering number of scrimmages recovering substance-abusers suffer as they traverse the road to recovery. Powerful. Additional pieces by esteemed and emerging authors—Margaret Benbow, Kent Nelson, Eugénie de Rosier, Kent H. Dixon, and R. Clifton Spargo—about “Selfies,” “The Misfortunes of Others,” “The Saint Necessity. . . ” and more, once again, deliver the best words in the best order.
