Summer has come rolling in with the late evening storms to the tempo of fireflies. This issue contains visceral work, examining the body as a part of nature and nature as part of the body. This issue reminds us to be present with ourselves, with others, with the natural landscape around us.
This is our third installment in the celebratory twenty years of Stirring. It features poems from Lauren Bender, Ardic Tenuta, and Tara A. Elliott. It also allows space for longer selections of fiction and nonfiction from Will Brooks and Michelle Gurule alongside a review of Elisabeth Horan’s chapbook written by Jessica Drake-Thomas. The incredible visual art curation features work from Phoebe Nale and Alex Cline with a photo series from Brittany V. Wilder.
