About This Issue

By on Apr 13, 2010 in Uncategorized

Wild Violet is entering a new era with a redesign that incorporates more user interactivity. As the first issue of the new design, Wild Transitions (Vol. IX Issue 1, Spring 2010) includes works that demonstrate a transition: whether between relationships or places, between worlds or between viewpoints.

Explore the transition between seasons with “Cut Grass in Snow,” “In Spring’s Bed” and “January Thaw.” Or traverse the worlds between the living and the dead in stories by Margaret Karmazin, Helen Tzagoloff, and Tony Dvorak, and with a poem by Frank De Canio. Traverse the connection between history and the present with essays by Donna Miller, Raghbir Dhillon and Kathryn Atwood. Question time travel with John Frank Weaver. Move past memories with poets Daniel Wilcox, Bill Gillard, Robert Leitz and David James.

As the magazine transitions into a new era, join these contributors for transitions between worlds, between lives, and between ideas.
