September’s Monthly Spotlight!

For this month’s Spotlight, Yemassee Online features a collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that highlights a myriad of human emotions: amusement & confusion, hope & frustration, joy & loss. These works also each hint at the underlying longing which makes us all human — that desire to connect with those around us regardless of difference or distance, in spite of past hurt or future uncertainty. In this time of rapid change and altered normalcy, we hope readers will be inspired by the writing featured here to hold fast to these connections and to do the work necessary to sustain them.

September’s Spotlight features the work of
Len Lawson, Darcy Casey, & Emily Lackey.

In addition to it’s featured place on our homepage for the next month,
you can also access the full September Spotlight at its permanent home here

all our best,
