October’s Monthly Spotlight!

For this month’s Spotlight, Yemassee Online features a collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that reminds us to consider the environmental world around us–its majestic beauty and the threats that face it. These works also skillfully examine the way all of these issues overlap. We are delighted to share these powerful works with our readers.

all our best,
