Featured in our latest issue, on this week’s NewPages Mag Stand, is the 2020 In-House Contest winning story “Trash Man” by Jessica Holbert alongside another story, “The Taxidermist,” by Seth Tucker. The poetry in this issue explores the emotional and physical connections to different geographies and technologies, from abandoned lighthouses and frost-covered pastures to half-truth news coverage and Harry Potter. Wrapping up the issue are visual arts and comics by Coz Frimpong, Geoffrey Detrani, Yi-hui Huang, Aimee Cozza, and Jason Hart.
The nonfiction in this issue asks difficult questions regarding the nature of power, self-concept, and family story; the stories explore the construction of self against one’s own misperceptions; and the poems callus toward our own inferiorities refracted by multi-layered experiences of loss and death.
