March Spotlight, AWP2020, and Issue 26.2!

March means Yemassee is hitting the road and heading to Texas!

We’re headed to San Antonio, TX for AWP2020 where Cody, Dylan, and I (and the entire Yemassee team)
are looking forward to the chance to meet our lovely readers and contributors in person,
and hopefully will make new ones at the conference and beyond.

We’ll be debuting Issue 26.2 and Threshold Amnesia, the 2019 Poetry Chapbook Prize Winner by Jessica Yuan.
Both titles are beautiful and we can’t wait to share them with you in Texas and back home in S.C.

If you’re not able to attend AWP this year, we hope you’ll enjoy what Yemassee Online has to offer for the month,

March’s Monthly Spotlight!

For this month’s Spotlight, Yemassee Online has curated a collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry exploring movement,
one that we think evokes the freedoms, choices, and dangers of journeys– both figurative and literal.
Whether pushing forward or anchored in place, they remind the reader of chance,
of the constancy of change, of anticipation for what waits just around the bend in a road that never stops unraveling.

March’s Spotlight features the work of
Dawn Abeita, Hannah Dow, Lauren Frausto, Scott Hutchison, David Rock, and Carolyn Schultz-Rathbun.

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

all our best,
Cody, Dylan, and Victoria
