Product Description

The MacGuffin’s Spring 2018 issue features new poetry by Poet Hunt 23 guest judge, Alberto Álvaro Ríos. Sonja Johanson submits an ode to her favorite amphibians Jim Daniels remembers an important moment in DiPalma’s “Blow Out.” This issue’s prose selections include Brenna Lemieux’s “Following Suit,” a novel family drama with a bit of a twist ending, and Stephen Hundley’s “Elsohn,” a masterful narrative about dealing with the cards that are given to—or forced upon—you. Two pieces of creative nonfiction this time: Tamara Adleman’s “Life Is Short, But Art Is Long” and Barbara Rebbeck’s chilling “The Russians are coming…”.
