Dear Readers and Writers,
The commencement of the third volume is three days late...sometimes being stranded in an unknown city with a broken car and the love of your life magnifies the effervescent beauty within all things. Even a fallen Autumn tree limb spontaneously stuck in the mouth can elicit the most powerful of emotions and gratitude.
I am especially grateful for Cathy Kodra, the guest poetry editor. She put together the most excellent, awesome collection of poetry I've read in a very long time. She is a truly brilliant and beautifully expressive woman.
At once synchronous yet singular, this issue shows how unmet fiction and poetry can interconnect to create patterns and movements of darkness and light. From irritable vowel syndromes and hunter's moons to ballers creeping and jars speaking, these authors show the mundane illuminated and the mirror of dreams reflected.
The Medulla Review has grown and flourished, and thanks to all of you, the ever present future of dynamic literature is alive and breathing in these works!
