Editor's Note 11/21

Good fiction's job is to comfort the disturbed
and disturb the comfortable.
David Foster Wallace

Welcome to our second issue!

We have been overwhelmed by the encouraging responses we’ve received from our first issue. In our second issue, we are delighted to showcase a fantastic range of new writing, both in verse and in prose.

We present prose and prose poetry by OisΓ­n Breen, David Henson, Mike Lee, Tom Misuraca, and Hailey Spencer.

All the best and happy reading,
