The MacGuffin - Vol. 33, No. 3 (Fall 2017)

Product Description

The Fall 2017 issue of The MacGuffin appears as a postcard from Michigan, its cover bearing a photo of the Upper Peninsula’s Big Bay Lighthouse, captured by Michigan’s own Monte Nagler. However, this issue features work outside of our home-state as well, from as close as Wisconsin—see B.J. Best’s one-pager on stuffed animal surgery on p. 73—and as far as Ukraine—Anastasiya Chuleyda’s narrative of a down-on-her-luck nurse. Rounding out this issue are poets new to our pages, with four poems from Jane Costain and two by both Frances Mac and Dan MacIsaac, among others.
