“This issue of the SFLR, themed ‘Tapestry: Diversity, Culture, and Common Ground,’ was a shot of hope for everyone who participated. As we scoured the news, watched our family members and loved ones fall ill, and struggled to maintain our own physical and mental health, we found deep solace in the tapestries of words and images delivered to us. Amidst grief, fear, and inertia, we used the editorial process to ground ourselves. Poring through submissions as they streamed in from around the world, we were reminded over and over that the human spirit is a tough and resilient thing, capable of creating and inventing even in times of darkness
In this year’s issue, we share stories, poems, essays, and images depicting the poles of loss and light that have so characterized these extraordinary pandemic times. A testament to the raw sense of wonder that exists within every creative soul, this issue lies rooted in the common ground upon which we all reside.” – SFLR Editors

The magazine also includes an exclusive interview with award-winning writer Kirstin Valdez Quade, author of The Five Wounds, her debut novel about a New Mexican family’s extraordinary year of love and sacrifice.
