This issue features work by emerging women writers who tell compelling and intricately detailed stories while being incisive, reflective and deeply personal. This issue begins with the winner of a creative nonfiction best essay award, “Post Mortem,” Norma V.L. Clarke’s essay about the torture of attending medical school in Jamaica and the riveting hold on her life by her mother. The three semifinalists, also included in this issue, were: “The Old Sort: Of Connemaras & Sweet Corn” by Caroline Nesbitt, “Dreamland” by Kathryn Hoffman Hughes and “Reunion” by Leaf Seligman.
