love note from the editor on the release of our third issue

1 Oct


When we issued the call for this themed issue, we had a set of ideas for what the burden of home might be. It is too easy to say home is not a dot on a map, attached less to geography and linked more to experience, love, loss, and the heart. The burdens of home have little to do with where we hang our hats. In most cases, the hat-hook has either rusted away or been torn from the figurative walls. So what is it, this burden? The contributors interrogate the idea of home and its burdens on the road, in returns, in leavings, in loss, in reconnection, in knowing theirs could be the next bus out, in leaping into the rivers of their fear, even in setting fire to what is left. We love every piece in this issue. We know you will, too.


We’ll release about half of the issue online, as we tend to do. But if you’d like to hold a print issue in your hand and read all of the beautiful work in the 200-page issue, please purchase a copy.
