Volume IV: The Human/Nature Edition showcases 37 authors, 13 returning writers submitting from 6 of our workshops in Greater Boston, presenting as our biggest and boldest edition yet. And, although the following pages may demonstrate a year of stability and growth in our programs, they are also a window into the complicated, and often dangerous, world we inhabit. This year, two of our contributors were incarcerated. One returned home. One very likely may not. This year, three of our workshop participants fatally overdosed. Two have submissions in the journal. One did not have time. In communities where incarceration is far too expected, in a year where overdose statistics are higher than ever, we can’t expect alarming facts to be merely distant figures. These are not just numbers, but friends we are sitting next to in our workshops, and they have reached out to offer their writing to you. Each year, we look at the overall theme of the collection after reviewing submissions, rather than asking for contributors to submit works related to a particular idea. I would not have predicted that the predominant theme of this year’s journal would have been interconnectedness with one another and the natural world. But, undeniably, it is.
