Dear Readers,

I couldn’t be more excited to present you with the latest issue of Corium Magazine. We’ve got a wonderful selection of work, including poetry from Sarah Carson, Laura E. Davis, James Grinwis, Sara Biggs Chaney, and Laura Eve Engel. In the fiction sections, we have new pieces from Donna Vitucci, Jonathan Johnson, James Westhoff, Ashley Farmer, Lydia Copeland Gwyn, Jim Ruland, Erik Doughty, Avital Gad-Cykman, Shellie Zacharia, and Ursula Villarreal-Moura. The cover art comes courtesy of William Rugen—one of my absolute favorite photographers (I urge you to check out his website).

Thank you to Lauren Becker for allowing me to carry out my dream of publishing an issue in reverse alphabetical order. (Why should Aaron Aarons have all the fun?) It was a huge honor to guest-edit a journal I admire as much as Corium.

I hope you enjoy the issue!
