Issue 44: Small


The small, ordinary moments are the measure of our lives—the choices we make to grow our worlds or to contract them. In Issue No. 44: Small, we’re exploring what happens when we choose smallness over largeness. The stories, poems, and artwork all hold up those tiny fragments of time, turning them over and noticing how they burn brightly in the stories of our lives.

FEATURING 2017 William Van Dyke Short Story Prize recipients April Vazquez, Andrew McCuaig, and Monica Jimenez—awarded by judge LaToya Watkins.
