Coming up in this week's Sapling

“We have a lot of themed issues and it doesn’t mean that we want you to try to shoehorn your story about breaking up with your first girlfriend into the Asian Urbanisms folio just because your protagonist eats a packet of Ramen noodles in the climactic scene. Use discretion and your best judgment.”–Ravi Shankar, Editor of Drunken Boat, from this week’s feature. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of:  cream city reviewSo and So Magazine! Black Balloon Publishing!
