Issue 3.30

Fall 2016

Editor: Andrea Actis

Issue 3.30 (Fall 2016), conceived as a “burning house” issue, asks alongside cover artist Marvin Luvualu António: “What are the aesthetics of high stakes?” An aesthetics of “unbridled vulnerability” is the answer landed upon in his conversation with Merray Gerges, and this open issue, assembled over months of acute political crises, brings together an array of work that tends to manifest, even in its rage, a kind of vulnerability that demands our openness and our willingness to act in kind. The issue features new writing by Hannah Black, listen chen, Jordan Abel, Oki Sogumi, Maged Zaher, Sarah Riggs, Jen Currin, and many others; artwork by sab meynert, Ahmad Salaj, Trevor Shikaze, and Winnie T. Frick; and review essays by David Geary, Mia Leinonen, Natalie Knight, and angela semple. It also includes kevin martins mcpherson eckhoff’s and Monroe Lawrence’s (tied!) winning entries to TCR’s Sixth Annual Robin Blaser Poetry Award competition, judged by Aisha Sasha John.
