The MacGuffin Spring/Summer 2023 issue marks the final volume of long-time typesetter and designer Ione Skaggs. The publication sends her off in grand style with a new story with a post-modern bend from MacGuffin favorite Gracjan Kraszewski to open things up and closes with a touching story that ruminates on both art and artists from Jeffrey Ihlenfeldt. In poetry, Karen Marker admits she’s “Been Following You on Instagram” and Laura Grace Weldon muses on the theater of our own lives in “Rich People We Know Offer Theater Tickets;” all this plus a four-poem spread of food-related poetry to inspire any reader’s next charcuterie foray. Cover art: “Dinner Guests” by Carol Aust, whose works are also featured in a full-color portfolio inside the issue.
