Creative Nonfiction

Ace in the Hole

“Looking back, anybody with their feet on the ground would perceive the words, prison and smuggling as red-flags, but for me, they were words of redemption.”

Jon Epstein

The Missing Link

“Not to say that having dreams about imaginary bigfoots and allegedly seeing one in real life is anything like sexuality, but having dreams about imaginary bigfoots and allegedly seeing one in real life is like sexuality: everyone experiences it differently.”

McKenzie Caldwell

Freedom Dance

“Feeling like a total failure, I toyed with the idea of suicide, but I had spent $135 for unlimited dance classes and I was determined to get my money’s worth. Besides even if nothing else was working, next month I’d be a better dancer.”

M. K. Narváez

Fiction

Hands

“You barely know any of them—but you need a companion who will be with you until the end. This is the construction of a bigger structure. This is the dismantling of the word alone.”

Sam Martone

Assembly Heart

“The girl then sat in the principal’s office with her hands folded in her lap, while the principal lectured on the dangers of escapism, and his assistant tinkered with the hatch in her chest, oiling the mechanism and testing the circuitry.”

Book Review

“A Reason to Return”: Twinning and Violence in E. A. Aymar’s The Unrepentant

“A woman with any power, any agency, is a threat to [the men’s] masculinity. Should she then be destroyed? Or is she necessary for balance?”

Beth Osborne
