Issue 206.1 has been long brewing; longer by far than any of our previous issues, but sometimes it just takes a little longer to build something to be proud of. And we are proud of it.
This issue is our last on this journey, and it covers a wide breadth of magic we’re always privileged to see in our contributor’s work. From time travel and ghostly memories; to the pain of love, and death, and nature; and to the last gasps and bright epiphanies of finding ourselves in our mortalities and the world. May this issue find you solace, peace, and a momentary breath away from the trudgings of regular life.
Thank you to all of our wonderful contributors–to David M. Alper, E. Kristin Anderson, Josh Anthony, Sara Backer, Stephanie Brooks, Chiara Di Lello, Todd Dillard, Scott Ferry, Maris Finn, Parker Galloway, Joshua Hamilton, Riley Hart, Kayla King, Nicole Mason, Khristian Mecom, Andrew Miller, Megan Neville, Robert Okaji, Dani Putney, Ronnie Sirmans, Emry Trantham, and Michael Welch. Thank you for entrusting us with your work.
Thank you also to Sara Iacovelli, Mehrnoosh Torbatnejad, Julia Dixon Evans, Graham Oliver, Melanie Lee, Diana Khong, Andrew Saavedra and Lindsay Branca, and all those who have graced us with their hard work and support over the past five years. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
And finally: thank you to all our readers, for always sharing in this with us. It’s been a wonderful privilege.
Be well,
– Emma Fissenden
