Introduction to Our Contributors’ Prose
From short story to memoir to creative non-fiction to essay, the five pieces launching the Prose section of our journal will convince you that their creators are incomparable stylists as well as talented story-tellers. Whether they’re describing rainstorms in Mexico and Portland (“High Priest” and “Running with Dragons”), sharing the pain of loss (“One Small Thing Right” and “How Mom Played Sad”), or rhapsodizing about the power of “voice” (“On Voice”), each author captivates us with her strong characters, settings and themes. As you read each piece, enjoy its artistry. We did!
