Issue 216

I am air-conditioned, scanning a book dedicated to me

and there is a rhythm for what I write

in randomly placed words, disconnected.

  1. The story submitted by Katy Reedy is very well written and easy to read!
    I really enjoyed the attention to literary detail, and I felt like I really got to know the characters.

  2. Issue 216 is on point. Particularly enjoyed the 90s throwback “You Are What you Eat” – it captures so much about women’s bodies and women’s friendships. Poignant and provoking. I was such a “Rachel”!
    Teenage dreams✨, BFFs💞, & Coming of Age💋 Forever!

  3. “Through the Peephole” by Linda Rosen is so visual I felt I was actually in her apartment. I could also hear her heart beating so fiecely. For a short piece, Rosen told me a lot.

  4. I read Linda Rosen’s piece Through the Peephole and felt my pulse throbbing as I took on the place of the girl facing the white wall. I trembled and breathed the scent of fear, smelled the man’s body come close. A thriller in a few words.
