Readers and Writers:
In order to bring a little heat into the heart of a cold winter, we present this month’s cover image, a photo taken in the middle of the Mojave Desert. The Joshua tree, depending on whom you ask is thought to represent strength, supplication, and the ability to thrive in difficult conditions. While we hope you’re thriving this winter, we’re providing a poetic oasis of sorts to get you through the days when the sun seems to set way too early. This is our fourth annual winter poetry issue—and we’re honored to present the work of these young writers.
Enjoy the issue!
