About Us

Vol. 6, Issue 2: Spring 2018

Highlights from the Spring 2018 issue:

This issue of Catamaran hones in on the human experience, from the personal to the ontological. Our cover art is by Bay Area based painter Rolland Petersen, whose 60 year painting career is legendary, and whose wife Caryl is his model and muse. Alison Harris's story "The Knot" and Varda Fiszbein's "The Transparent Scarf" illustrate the beauty of chance encounters. Thomas Christensen gives us an informative survey of the prevailing theories of what constitutes life in his essay "La Vie en Rose." Poet Farnaz Fatemi  stuns us with her viscerality, depening the artistic narrative. The paintings of Jason E. Carter illustrate the shades of suburban life in his "Domestic" series.
