Issue 37: Being Known


For this issue of Ruminate, we explore what it means to be known. How can we know ourselves and those around us? When have we remembered or realized that we're not alone? What is like when a person or a piece of art “gets” you? Or doesn’t. Can we ever be truly, wholly known? Join us in exploring and reflecting on these questions and much more!

*Sometimes we love an issue so much we overprint it. We're getting better at determining print runs, but in the meantime, you get to enjoy an amazing issue at half-off the regular price. 

FEATURING 2015 William Van Dyke Short Story Prize judged by Amy Lowe.
