In the face of the immense grief that surrounds us, for this issue Ruminate Magazine editors decided to explore What Remains.
“Everything is held together with stories,” writes the acclaimed author Barry Lopez, who died this past year, a few months after the Holiday Farm Fire destroyed his house and archives. “That is all that is holding us together. Stories and compassion.”
This issue features the winners of our 2020 Broadside Poetry Prize.
