FICTION | The Story Writes Itself by Drew A. Carmichael

'Rosewood is the safest district in the county. Seriously, the Chatwit Corporation took a poll. Last week a local TV station filed a news report.'

FLASH FICTION | A Balloon by B. Bisaillon

'Some time during the night, I lost the weight at the end of my string. I wonder how high I can climb before I pop.'

POETRY | Three Poems by W. F. Parent

'Queen of the skies,
Black and gold
Against sky of blue,
Passed over my boat the other day,
With no land in sight.'

FLASH FICTION | Beloved by Amethyst Loscocco

'He slowly walked up the stone path to the door. The dry leaves had been swept into a neat corner of the front yard.'

POETRY | Julia Childs Joins the Witness Protection Program by Allison Thorpe

'The crime is not important.
Let's just say there were too many cooks
with too many sharp knives and Julia saw it all.'
