Dear Flying Island Readers: Welcome to the 5.21 Edition of the Flying Island Journal! We have four contributors this month in creative nonfiction and poetry. This issue includes three poems that jolt you, reminding you what it's like to be alive and present but also grounded in changes and relationships with siblings, ourselves, and nature. This issue also includes a creative nonfiction essay that welcomes you into the world of the American Saddlebred that's rooted in history and nostalgia and the world of show horses. We hope you enjoy this issue and don't forget to submit your poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction (link in the tab above). We publish new issues the last Friday of every month. Thank you for reading, Flying Island Editors CREATIVE NONFICTION Emma Hudelson: "Damline" POETRY Frances Klein: "Between the Devil and the Clear Blue Sky" Vincent Corsaro: "Growing Up" Virginia Thomas: "Trip Taken by Rail" Follow us
