Issue: Summer 2013

Caitlin Horrocks’s essay “Year of the Dogs” details her struggle as a dog lover and woman with pet allergies. The attempt to pursue a friendship with an ex-wife, a vacation in Greece, a mysterious door at the end of the hallway, and insensitive friends at the beach play in new stories by Katherine Heiny, Sondra Spatt Olsen, Alexi Zentner, and Holly Goddard Jones. Poems range from Ryan Teitman’s humorous crown of sonnets to Charles Rafferty’s poignant prose poems. Other poets featured include Stephen Dunn, Sydney Lea, Jacqueline Kolosov, Amaud Jamaul Johnson, Barbara Hamby, Weston Cutter, Bob Hicok, and many others.
