We are proud to exhibit our summer 2017 issue focused on the theme of LOUD / SOFT / RESPOND. This is our third annual themed issue and deals with underrepresented voices who are responding to being silenced in a loud or soft way. Our guest editor, Chen Chen, helped curate an astounding lineup. What began as a focus of duality has lead to a spectrum of response, and we are thankful to all who sent work and promoted this issue.
Poets Ava C. Cipri, Jennifer Saunders, Sage, Vivian Faith Prescott, and more respond alongside fiction by Ariel Chu and nonfiction by Aubri K. Adkins. They are accompanied by reviews from Laura Page, on Cheryl Pallant's collection, and Kristen Figgins, on Tammy Robacker's collection. This issue also proudly includes the 2017 winners of SAFTA's OUTspoken.- SUMMER 2017 VOL. 19 ED. 3 -
