In this issue: Poems by Lauren Berry, Sarah Crossland, John Paul Davis, and Corey Van Landingham. Gretchen VanWormer examines the heart as hummer in the essay, “Would I Had Some Hum.” In the story, “Salt and Light,” by Gabrielle Hovendon, a city vanishes in bursts of light. And Andrew Spear documents life in Glouster, Ohio in our art feature, “The Magic City.”
