Letter from the Editors

Welcome to Issue Seventy-Nine of The Collagist!

This month, we’re happy to feature stories from Teresa Carmody, Meghan Lamb, Eric Magnuson and Jessica Newman, along with an excerpt from Fred Leebron’s Welcome to Christiania.   In poetry, we have new work Dilruba Ahmed, Desiree Bailey, Les Kay and Robert Campbell, plus an illustrated poem from Aimee Nezhukumatathil (Illustrated by Lemon Reimer).  Our nonfiction this month is an essay by Tyler Mills.

In book reviews, we have coverage of Yearling by Lo Kwa Mei-en (reviewed by David Nilsen), Into the Valley by Ruth Galm (reviewed by Ilana Masad), Dodge Rose by Jack Cox (reviewed by Jacob Singer), and Calf by Andrea Kleine (reviewed by Jerry McGuire).

As always, thank you to all our contributors, and to you, our readers.  We hope you enjoy this issue.  

Gabriel Blackwell and Matthew Olzmann
