We’ve pushed back the launch of to celebrate Earth Day (well, okay, we’re actually delayed just a bit, but the coincidence is nice). Look for the new issue with the theme of “Migration” at on April 23rd.

And let us say right now that it’s a stunning issue, with poetry from the likes of B.A. Wingate, Derek Sheffield, Emma Trelles, Ed Zahniser, Eleanor Paynter, and many others; essays from Scott Russell Sanders, Sharman Apt Russell, Howard Mansfield, and others; fiction by Joanna Beth Tweedy, Tom Noyes, and Steven Woodward; To Know a Place (essay and photos) by Abeer Hoque; ARTerrain gallery by Japanese photographer Yozo Takada; guest editorial by Allison Hedge Coke; interview with Rebecca Solnit; articles on Laramie: A Gem City Atlas, mountain lions, climate change and migration, a melon’s cross-border journey, and Tim Robinson’s Maps of Aran; Holiday neighborhood in Boulder, Colorado, as the UnSprawl case study, and more!

So yeah, it rocks.

April 1st also brings us the opening of our new submission period, through August 1st. We are now accepting submissions for our announced upcoming themes: “Ruin and Renewal” and “Craft.” And we’ll announce a new issue theme when “Migration” launches, as well. And submissions are also open for our 3rd annual contests in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
