  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 5 Issue 4, October 2019 online

The work in “Infinite Country: Deepening Our Connection to Place, Culture and One Another” pushes back against the prevailing narrative of political and cultural divisiveness. This issue of About Place attempts to carry forward the vision of creating a more perfect union, whether this union be of citizens of differing cultural and political beliefs, or of humanmade and natural worlds. To say that significant schisms don’t exist in our polity would be denial. But these poets, writers, essayists, painters and photographers draw our attention to the deeper, more complex map that lies beneath the surface, and makes our country infinite.

In this issue, explore new flash fiction by Charles Rafferty, KJ Hannah Greenberg, Adam Kluger, Peter Loftus, Laurette Folk, Geraldine McCarthy, Steviee Geagan, Charles Rammelkamp, Arya F. Jenkins, Bruce Levine, Blake Johnson, Ingrid Anders, Pamela J. Picard, William Cass, and Paul Gray.
