2018 (Volume 30)

Welcome to our 30th year. In this day of print venues folding up and closing their doors and of deciphering fake news from real news, we have kept going, telling the truths that literature and art can tell.

Volume 29

Every year we increasingly see why our mission is so important. As we live in a world of fake news, online publishing with a blink-of-an-eye shelf life, and short-short news cycles, we know our work has value. 

Volume 28

This year we witness not only our contest winners, but many of our other writers dealing with reminiscing and regretting. As Henry David Thoreau said, "To regret deeply is to live afresh."

Volume 27

The theme of loss and change is everywhere in our 27th edition. Change is inevitable in this fast-paced world, a truth we discovered — and embraced — as we accepted electronic entries for the first time in our history.


Volume 26

In this issue we go global. We have connections to Thailand, Peru, Dubai, Ehtiopia, Paraguay, Syria, France, Italy, Japan and Pakistan. Yet these works still have themes that we see on our own native soil.
