Our contributing poets are Kailey Tedesco, Carla M. Cherry, Catfish McDaris, Robert Lee Kendrick, Reese Conner, Candace Howze, and Tristan Silverman. The prosaists are Alison Liu, Sandy Beaches, and Lauren Spinabelli. Thanks to everyone who submit, but these people just came a bit more correct.
As for the Dreams contest, we did not have a poetry winner. Sad.
However, we did have a winning story: “Freighthopping” by Alison Liu! She gets all the money! Congratulations to Ms. Liu.
The photo is from the immensely talented artist Kathy Rudin, who also provided us with a cover image for Issue 8. A few words from the artist:
“Trophies,” was taken at a local Northeastern pharmacy, opened in 1972, called Souththrifty Drug. It is part of my constant search for authentic vintage Americana in a country that doesn’t always value or preserve its history. Especially the 1950’s through the 70’s, a more recent past that seems to be disposable and more prosaic items that are so easily forgotten.
