…I wanted to take a quick moment to share some contributor news.

Photographer Stephen Tomasko, whose work is featured in our first issue, has co-created a beautiful short film. You can watch it here.

Songwriter Amy Lou Hettinger, whose song lyrics  were featured in our first issue, composed music to  the Knute Skinner poem Let us Know. The Alaska Quarterly Review put her to that task for their Midnight Muse: Singing Poems from Alaska project. You can listen, and read an interview with AQR editor here.

Poet Hannah Stephenson, whose poem Miniatures was featured in our first issue (and more to come from Hannah in our next!), is hosting the 4th Paging Columbus event at OSU. If you’re a writer or artist near Columbus, Ohio, I urge you to check out her events! She’s a bright, fresh, supportive voice in the literary world (and one of my favorite living poets right now!).

You can see painter and photographer Neranza Noel Blount’s Skyscapes series is currently featured in the Rothrock Cafe at the Lawson McGhee Library in Knoxville. Neranza will also have work featured in our upcoming issue!

You can full a full list of our contributors to our first issue here. Can’t wait to share our new artists when we publish our second issue!
