It’s here’s it’s here it’s here – picture me dancing in one place, giddy as a school girl.
Want to know who our gracious, wonderfully talented writers for Issue 13 are? For poetry: Anna Weaver, Jackson Burgess, Riley Vuyovich, Jess Pauscher, Hillary Kobernick, Cynthia Gallaher, Lynn Hoffman, Ariel Fintushel, and Tim Duffy. For our cover art, Sarah “Sapphene” Soltan provided this, a piece called “Shame.”
By way of explaination, At twenty-one years old, Sarah “Sapphene” Soltan currently studies game design at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She has always loved the fine arts for their ability to visualize difficult topics and emotions, but her dreams at the moment reside in creating art for video games that engage the player in the same way one might view a fine art piece.
Before attending SCAD, Sarah photographed “Shame” as part of a series to create more dialogue and understanding about eating disorders.
Next, you may have noticed that there were no prose authors mentioned. This is not by design! Unfortunately, none of the 100+ stories we received were right for us, but we did find a whole lot of great poems, so fuck it, I went with it. This, however, means there was no winner for the fiction category of our contest, meaning that the poetry winner doubled their money into $40.
And that winner is Anna Weaver, for her poem “avocado (for Jocelyn)!
Congrats to her! Congrats to everyone! Buy, buy, buy (here, at this link or from the Buy tab above)!
