Coming up in this week's Sapling

“At any one time, there’s always so much new writing, in such a wide range of voices and styles, guided by so many different influences and theories, that no journal could contain or represent all of it. To me the job of an editor is to channel some of that energy and shape it to a certain extent so it can be better seen and recognized.”—Keith Newton, Editor at Harp & Altar, from this week’s feature article. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of: Prairie Schooner! interrupture! Blue Square Press!
