Letter from the Editor

For a little while, I honestly didn’t think this day would arrive. One thing you don’t realize when starting a literary magazine is just how hard it is to run a literary magazine. For those of you who have followed us on our journey, you know that we’ve had quite a shakeup in our masthead over the past year. Our leader is on hiatus (with an absolutely adorable new baby), and several of our editorial positions have switched hands. And yet, here we have it: Issue 2. I’m always amazed at how things come together. Our new editors and loyal submission readers have done a wonderful job selecting work for this issue. We have poetry and fiction from a mix of newcomers and established names in the world of literature, not to mention pieces that truly stretch the boundaries of genre. I couldn’t be happier to present to all of you this packaged set of work. You may notice that none of the pieces here are non-fiction. This was not deliberate, but simply a matter of timing and masthead changes. Our stellar CNF editors are working closely with several writers to bring you some remarkable essays in our next issue. From here on, the essay will be strongly represented, I promise you that. This issue couldn’t have come together without the hard work of all of our staff. I am grateful to everyone involved in putting this magazine together. But, of course, a huge thanks must go out to our Managing Editor, Mahtem. She is the reason the beautiful digital compilation you’re about to leaf through exists. So thank you all for your work, and thank you all for taking the time to read the writing we’re so proud to showcase. To the continuous adventure, Benjamin Woodard Editor In Chief
