  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 5 Issue 2, October 2018

For this issue of About Place Journal, we were interested in works that get at the root of our current political disaster. We also wanted work that explored and reveled in our sources of support, interconnection, solace, and strength. We wanted work that could be useful to those of us engaged in this challenge who, on many days, feel exhausted, overwhelmed and disheartened. We wanted work that would challenge us to learn from perspectives outside of our own, that would help us understand history and how we arrived at this moment.

The latest issue features work by Lila Rabinovich, A. Poythress, Stephanie Cotsirilos, Andrew Hughes, KJ Hannah Greenberg, Donald Zagardo, Susan Margaret Scott, Fernando Meisenhalter, Claire Faugeroux, Paul Beckman, Robert Wexelblatt, B.L. Makiefsky, Thomas Genevieve, and Hillary Jo Foreman.

The “Passage Issue” is now on sale and features the poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction of ten writers, with cover art by Naji Chalhoub.
