Wild Violet Issue Goes Live

This summer has been a big one for me, as I adjusted to life with my son, now three months old. Despite the challenges posed by this very sweet distraction, I finally managed to complete the summer issue, Vol. IX Issue 2 (Heat Wave).

The contributors of "Heat Wave" evoke the heat, light, and impermanence of summer. Check out "Heat Wave" to bid summer a graceful good-bye. In this issue, you'll find:

Poetry by Lou Orfanella, Anthony Botti, R. Steve Benson, Joseph LoGuidice, Mary Sayler and Doug Ramspeck;

Fiction by Lou Orfanella, Margaret Karmazin and John T. Hitchner;

Humor by Thomas Sullivan and K. A. Laity;

Essays by John F. Joyce, Dean Borok, Jon Baldwin, Linda Oatman High, Tala Bar and Mattie Louise;

Cuttings by John F. Joyce, Charles Sanft and Bernie Mojzes;

And Art/Photography by Aditi Laddha, Randy Thurman, Darla Farner, Mary Ann Reilly, Alexandra Parsons and Alisha Gaspard.
