Rivet Issue 6
We close out 2015 with visions mythic and meditative, heartrending and human.
The dark months are upon us. The feast months, the family months, when the past catches up with us and won’t be ignored. Rivet issue 6 enters that dark with a blazing light and asks: How can we look into the void and still render ourselves complete?
Featuring fiction by Paul Kavanagh, Phoebe Reeves-Murray, Benjamin Schachtman, and Alina Stefanescu; and poetry by Eve Kenneally, Elisabeth Sharp McKetta, Kathleen Nalley, Austin Sanchez-Moran, and Scott Sherman.
Light a candle, take our hand. We’ll go there together.
