Issue No. 47 is inspired by the winning creative nonfiction from our 2018 VanderMey Nonfiction Prize, and it features stories and poems and art on the pain that haunts us all as well as the ways we unwind and hold and heal what haunts us. This issue is a invitation to encounter and transform that which we normally keep in the shadows. As Richard Rohr writes, "If we do not transform pain, we will most assuredly transmit it."
