Where y'at? December 23, 2020

The long and short of it:

It's been quite the year, and we here at SFK appreciate all of you who liked, followed, and supported our authors. We had some phenomenal works published this year, from soul-searching nonfiction to wild cults to scifi noir to life in the South. We would like to thank each and every one of our authors for giving us great words to publish.
Our Zine, The New Southern Fugitives, had a great year also, publishing first-time authors as well as some who've been writing for a while. Here are the five most-read posts of the year:
"Some Things Get Lost" by Lauren McGuire
"I'm Here for Fish" by T. J. Hunter
"Chorus for the Kill" by Allison Blevins and Joshua Davis
"Out: Testimony of an Alabama Queer" by Joshua Cole
"She and Shakespeare and I" by Lillian Hallock
The New Southern Fugitives is publishing a brand new book review today!

A. Poythress writes "Together, We Face the Future" a review of In the Way of All Flesh by Caitlin Alise Donovan

Excerpt from the review: "It’s not often, in my experience, that secondary characters are given enough emotional depth to make a reader actually care about what happens to them in most YA series. I found Emma and Jackson to be the most compelling secondary characters—there’s something about their dynamic that makes me want to read their story, see their lives through their eyes."

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.
