Hello again.
Oof, I know we’re all feeling exhausted–both from everything going on in the world, and from our endless schedules. Our hope is that this issue is a balm. 
We have the honour of featuring writer & artist Megan Perra, whom we’ve had the pleasure of publishing before. Perra is our Objects of Derision this issue, and we’ve got a fascinating interview, a wonderfully written but heartbreaking essay following the collision between human and mammal, and a reprint of an essay about an eclipse and the wildness inside of us.

Issue 205.2 also features magical and moody photography by Katherine Robbins, and contributions from Carl Boon, Chloe N. Clark, Todd Dillard, Josh Giacometti, Anita Goveas, Julie Hart, Aby Kaupang, Christopher Locke, Kristine Langley Mahler, Rita Mookerjee, Mary Balice Nelligan, Jacob Parsons, Andy Posner, Basmah Sakrani, Erika Saunders, Jackie Sizemore, Kimberly Ann Southwick, Artemis Spyridonidis, Madeline Wallace, & Emily Paige Wilson. 
Thank you to all of our wonderful contributors–for allowing us to present your work to readers, for putting your trust in us as editors.
Thank you also to Sara Iacovelli, Mehrnoosh Torbatnejad, Julia Dixon Evans, Graham Oliver, Olga Belykh, John Boucher, Diana Khong, Andrew Saavedra and Lindsay Branca, without whom I would always be lost.
And finally: thank you to all our readers, for always sharing in this with us.
Until next time,
– Emma Fissenden
