This week we take to the woods with the poetry of William Conable. Also, only a few days left for nonfiction contest submissions! Send ’em now, folks.

This issue features Daniel Romo’s poetry on school, work, and paying attention. Have you seen our contest guidelines?

Thoughtful, delicate, and overwhelming in its detail, M.F. McAuliffe’s fiction will leave you reeling. Also, check out our contest guidelines. The next deadline is soon, so send your submissions!

Ron Bloodworth is our star this issue, musing on retirement. Our contest is ongoing, though the first deadline has already passed. Send us your submissions, your stories and ideas. We look forward to featuring you on our Wall of Winners.
