Where y'at? December 9, 2020

The long and short of it:

As this wild year heads into the homestretch, our publisher, Steve McCondichie writes an insightful introspective essay in which he offers an encouraging meditation of the personal as it interweaves with the global events of this year.

"This year, many of us have faced difficult risk-and-reward choices, deciding between degrees of pain and discomfort. It’s as if we’ve all been passing through the Bardos together. The challenge for me has been to gain the proper perspective to seed the courage I need to keep moving." - Steve McCondichie

The New Southern Fugitives Volume 4, Issue 1: Hope and Humanity

For our inaugural issue of Volume 4, we are exploring themes of hope and humanity as we reflect on a tumultuous year.

Our Founding Editor, Steve McCondichie, has contributed an essay that delves into the many different pains we have all experienced this year and how we might move on from 2020.

Two Art pieces-a triptych by C. Christine Fair and a collage from C.R. Resetarits-stare unblinkingly at the virus and its consequences, how we dare to hope for a brighter future.

Two poems by Mary Helen Callier highlight personal struggles in an isolated world.

And lastly, Laura Ohlmann's poem considers a community at odds, a feeling of isolation even within relationships, and, finally, the emblematic resiliency of nature.
