BWR42.1_Cover_front_webDear Reader, 

Issue 42.1 is here! Head over to bwr.ua.edu to check out the most recent issue, as well as BWR’s latest news, interviews, reviews, and other featured content. In 42.1, we are so excited to share with you the incredible work of these writers and artists: 

Jessica Alexander • Aimee Baker

Nathan Clay Barbarick • MRB Chelko

Ansley Clark • Claudia Cortese

Patty Yumi Cottrell • Kat Finch

Shamala Gallagher • Alex McElroy

Soraya Palmer • Lynda Sexson 

Caroline Belle Stewart • Laura Theobald

Candice Tripp • G.C. Waldrep  • Colin Winnette 

42.1 features work that considers the fantastical, the mythological, the surreal, and the lineages and histories of language and magic. You'll find poems and prose that use fairy stories, tall tales, and myths to interrogate the foundations of the human condition. We are proud that nearly all of this issue comes from general submissions, complemented by Colin Winnette's chapbook, Loudermilk, as well as the gorgeously macabre illustrations of Candice Tripp. 

We are also pleased to announce that our recent online auction fundraiser was a great success. The funds we raised will help us tremendously in our efforts to showcase the kind of innovative, exciting, and challenging writing you've come to expect from us. All proceeds go towards producing Black Warrior Review, and to paying our contributing writers for their work. Thank you to everyone who participated and made our fundraiser possible! 

Finally, we are so grateful for you, the community that supports and sustains BWR. You can continue your support of the journal and these writers and artists by donatingsubscribing, or purchasing 42.1 today. We hope you enjoy 42.1 as much as we have enjoyed making it. Happy reading!
