Coming up in this week's Sapling

“My ideal reader, instead of reading from start to finish, would pick the book up every so often and stumble across a new story. I like to think of the book as a territory rather than a narrative.”—James Tadd Adcox, author of The Map of the System of Human Knowledge, from this week’s feature article. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of: Poetry Quarterly! The Journal! Mid-List Press!
