Fall/Winter 2018 (42.1)-Flora, Fauna, & Lore
Outside, the other voices are speaking.
Pine needles sing with rain
and a night crawler
with its five hearts
across the road.
the other voices speak
and they are mine
and they are not mine
and I hear them
and I don’t,
and even police can’t stop earth telling.
—“The Other Voices” by Linda Hogan
For our next issue, we are embracing our natural world. We are folding up our maps and wandering into the woods. We are using our writing to preserve the environment, to speak out against injustices to nature, and considering ecopoetics and ecocriticism. We are pursuing passed down stories, folktales, myths, urban legends, and origins. Send us your poetry, fiction, nonfiction, translation, experimental forms, or writing that greets and challenges the theme.
Closes August 15, 2018.
