Hi, all you wonderful wordsmiths!
Once again, we're so pleased to announce our latest issue of The Merrimack Review. We're grateful for all your feedback after the Spring 2020 issue, and that our shorter, tighter issue was so well-received. We've continued that practice in this issue. As we worked through the pandemic—our staff, our readers, our writers—we had plenty of time at home to think about what we still had. And, thankfully, we still have all of you. We enter 2021 with an unimaginable loss, but also unspeakable hope for a better future. The Fall 2020 issue speaks to love, to presence and absence, to vacancies oft unspoken. We're so thankful for the wonderful, brilliant work of our contributors. With all that said—please enjoy this latest collection.
And, of course, a special thanks to Judah Jubilee for our cover art, as well as our website banner.
Featured contributors include: Katelyn Allred, JC Choi, Courtney Griffiths, Sheridan Hansen, Abigail Jade, Judah Jubilee, Jack Kohler, Emily Ladd, Cora Lewis, Alejandro Lucero, Martina Miranda, Andrea Negrin, Michelle Nguyen, Fatoumata Ouedrago, Kristian Perez, Lauren Phillips, Zachariah Rohrbough, Nisâ Sevsay, Liam Strong, and Haley Sui.
