Life is anything but solitary. Like water seeping into an empty riverbed, we find our own borders by discovering where they bump up against others. “How we need another soul to cling to,” Sylvia Plath, that thorough explorer of the self, wrote in her journal. Our relationships – with mothers, lovers, or brothers – are as responsible for making us as anything we think truly springs from us. SAND 9 delves deep into our relationships with both others and ourselves. These stories, poems, and artworks push beyond pithy platitudes to reveal, in subtle ways, how we’re broken and made by those around us.
Featuring a special section of ekphrastic poetry in collaboration with Visual Verse, inspired by the cover artist Erin Quinn.
