volume 14 number 1 April 2017

    Please forgive the lateness of publication. Between computer glitches and work commitments, this issue sat in limbo, waiting for me to apply the final touches.
    In the era of the new normal, I am more grateful than ever for the poets and writers who keep creating, writing, and pushing the boundaries of literary expression. You are the lights in the dark, and you give hope to many who, like myself, may feel like there is none left.
    Please enjoy this issue.
