I shall draw one last bird for you
— Mr. Lessing

Issue 9 of Rivet Journal offers an absolute feast of literary styles, from flash nonfiction to our first novella. Among the delights in store for you:
In “Mr. Lessing” by Nick Roth, divine madness clashes with greed in pre-Gold Rush California; Larry Handy teaches us “What to Do When Grandma Has Dementia” in this powerful work of memoir; and Mindela Ruby‘s “Africa Safari Journal (in Haiku) (with Footnotes)” draws our eye to what is visible but not seen. You’ll also find poetry by Tricia Knoll, Liz N. Clift, John Michael Mouskos, and Alison Moncrieff, nonfiction by Jessamyn Smyth and Mark Davenport (a.k.a. Alex George), and flash fiction by Vincent Barry.

Go ahead, take a bite.
