Spring/Summer 2024: Refuge. Our annual thematic issue, featuring work on the theme of refuge, as well as general submissions and the winners and finalists of the Francine Ringold Awards for New Writers.

At some point in each of our lives, we need refuge: space that makes us feel safe, protected, and sheltered. Where do we find refuge? How do we find it? What forms does it take? Refuge may be a physical space, as small as a favorite room or as large as a new country, or it may be a mental space, a way that we find security within our own minds. Refuge may be found within a person or group of people, from family and friends to people on the internet. Whether it’s a condition we’ve already found, or something that we’re still seeking, the idea of refuge carries power.

In this issue, we’ll examine refuge in both its literal and its metaphorical dimensions.

Refuge will be published in spring 2024.
