Issue 48: Exposure

Issue No. 48 is inspired by the winning short stories from our 2018 William Van Dyke Short Story Prize, and it features stories and poems and art exploring  vulnerability, safety, the body, and home. Exposure is a state that makes one vulnerable to harm, however this vulnerability is necessary for being in community.
