Colm Tóibín on the Art of Fiction: “No matter what you do in a novel there’s a secret DNA of whatever it is that you’ve suffered.” N. Scott Momaday on the Art of Poetry: “I was writing lines that looked like lines of poetry, recollecting my early days on the reservation, but I didn’t know the difference between a spondee and a dactyl.”
Prose by Avigayl Sharp, Lucas Hnath, and Mieko Kanai.
Poetry by William IX of Aquitaine, Cynthia Cruz, and Peter Mishler.
Art by Mary Manning and Lily van der Stokker.
