A Word from the Editor

Welcome to Issue 7.4!

I’m very excited about this issue. It’s jam-packed with fantastic work from three incredible women writers. Both the Nonfiction and Fiction pieces are a little longer than normal, but I believe you’ll find that to be a treat. They are both exceptional, and were both strong contenders in our Nonfiction and Fiction competitions.

Arlene Schulman brings us her personal essay “My Year (or so) with the New York Yankees” which includes a couple of photos from her time with the Yankees. Amanda Claire Buckley’s short story “Convention” is a well-written piece of fiction that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each time I’ve read it. Finally, a talented young poet, Alexis Derickson, brings us her lovely poem “Fernweh.” Please do connect with these women online through their websites and social media accounts, and let them know you enjoyed their work!

Don’t forget! Next week, we’ll be announcing the winners of our first ever poetry contest, so be sure to check back next week.

Until next time!
