The 2015 edition presents new poetry and prose from thirty-five contributors in 12 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada. They probe diverse human themes including individualism, acceptance, loss, birth, death, love, healing, and a sense of belonging in the larger world. The issue opens with a conversation between the poetry editor and Sue Ellen Thompson about her celebrated book, They, in which Ms. Thompson uses poetry to explore family and generational issues of acceptance over having a trans-gender child.
Volume 8 is available in print and digital editions worldwide from major online booksellers (Amazon.com, Kindle, etc.), as well as regional libraries and bookstores on the Delmarva Peninsula.
