Coming up in this week's Sapling

“So, first there’s the theme…and then we assemble the contents. This may surprise you, but whether or not a poem speaks to the theme is not a consideration. We select poems that we like and admire. If a poem speaks to the theme, 99 times out of a 100, it’s a coincidence, a happy accident.”–William D. Waltz, Editor of the Conduit, from this week’s feature. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of: Ahsahta Press! DASH Literary Journal! Tupelo Press!
