Letter from the Editors, Summer 2018, Issue 18

What makes you feel that summer has finally arrived? Is it the hot humid air, sitting on porch swings, biting into your first peach? The writers of our fantastic new summer issue have summer on their mind — whether they’re writing about the ocean and how they’ve been drawn to it all their lives, or attending a Cubs game in Chicago, hoping for a World Series win, or walking the swampy corridors of a California prison as prison guards. We’ve got fascinating, thought-provoking stories, essays, and poems for you to enjoy this season, whether you’re on your summer vacation or still stuck at work.

We’re also filling a special themed issue for the fall; we want your scary stories! Ghost stories, phobia stories, horror stories, stories of quiet foreboding…we want your poems, essays, and fiction about the things that keep you up at night, both real and imagined.

Happy reading!

Blair Hurley & Olivia Tandon
