Happy National Poetry Month
Angela Yuriko Smith
So many words—this issue bristles with them. Five stories (+ two in the digital edition) and 15 poems have filled this issue fit to burst. The characters that parade through them are as varied as the writers who pen them. Girls with pesky Y chromosomes holding them back, beasts hunting a frightened city, a mourning lover hunting another chance, a lost girl trapped in the wrong body, an arms dealer's daughter coming of age... the tales spill across the page, waiting to ensnare your imagination for a few hours. To celebrate April as National Poetry Month, this issue is also rich with poetry. All of this is wrapped up in a beautiful cover created by K.B. Kofoed.
