How to Navigate This Magazine

Our magazine is laid out in spreads (sets of two facing pages). To flip between sequential spreads, simply use the "Next" and "Previous" links in the gray navigation bar. To skip to a nonsequential spread, return to the Table of Contents via the link of that name; once there, click on the title of any poem to jump to its spread. To isolate an individual piece in a new window (sans spread formatting) for printing purposes, navigate to the spread containing the first page of that poem, and then click on its title (this applies only to text; images cannot be isolated in this way). To jump to the bio of any contributor (whether poet or visual artist), click on their name as it appears above or beside the title of their piece.

A Note About Listening to Audio Content

This issue uses an application called WordPress Audio Player to allow you to listen to an .mp3 recording featuring a performance of the poem, "Where are you from?." The Audio Player pops out in a new window when you click "Listen" and requires that you have Javascript enabled and the Adobe Flash Player plugin installed. We recommend that you use the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player (version 10), if possible. Should you find that you are unable to display or load the Audio Player, the developer recommends either disabling Flash block (if you're running Firefox with Adblock 3), installing or reinstalling the Flash Player plugin, or upgrading to the latest version.
