The Islands Issue
No. 11, summer 2018
Here you’ll find an archipelago of lush new lands to explore—tales of loss, redemption, revenge, and a vampire brooding with penguins. Lydia Davis muses in a lonely traveler’s stream of consciousness. Creative nonfiction by Lee Gutkind forces us to confront the erosion that occurs as memory laps upon the shore of truth. Mark Jacobs tells the story of an unlikely friendship born of tragedy in a tropical paradise. Poems by CAConrad explore the nature of freedom, time, and personal identity. And, in an exclusive feature, Kwame Dawes shares new work and talks to us about his artistic heritage, faith, and the ways in which social media both isolates and enjoins. Merging fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and a powerful feature with Writers Without Margins, F(r)iction #11 invites you to island-hop on the weirdest literary adventure imaginable.
