We are extremely proud of this volume of work. Much like the cover photo by Traci Matlock, a self-portrait in not giving any cares over where we pour our glasses of water, the issue is brimming with work that rides the thin line of artifice and confession, and does so with the unfaltering nay unstoppable grace we see immediately in Traci’s piercing gaze. Do consider purchasing a copy of this insanely hearty issue; and consider too a subscription for one or even two whole years. While you’re at it, check out Issues 1 & 2!
