Issue 62 / Winter 2017
Unexpected brightness in the darkest times
This issue captures elusive, unexpected moments of joy. Whether trying to make the most of an audience with the Dalai Lama, worrying about an eighth-grade Dinner Dance, or straining to see the stars in the night sky, contributors find themselves transported beyond distractions, discomforts, and disasters. We also explore the joys of the writing life, from the feel of the perfect pen to the satisfactions of changing readers’ minds.
Plus, writing through grief; tips for having more fun at the writing desk; tiny truths; and more.
