About Us

Vol. 7, Issue 3: Fall 2019, Issue 26

Highlights from our 26th issue:

In this issue we celebrate the art of poetry with works from our 2019 Catamaran Poetry Prize winner, finalists, and semifinalists. Though the contest is only in its second year, we have been astounded by the quality and number of great poetry collections we’ve received each cycle. We continue our celebration of poetry with one of America’s greats, Robert Hass. We are thrilled to share a poem by this Pulitzer Prize winner and former U.S. poet laureate. We have a record number of short stories in this issue, and the fiction in this issue will transport you to fully realized worlds. Our creative nonfiction explores our inner life with several poignant memoirs, and also our connection to the natural world including an essay by Josie Iselin on sea otters.
