EDITOR'S NOTE: When it comes to literary community - what we think that word means, or could mean, or should - it’s been a hard few weeks for many. For us, too. There has been plenty to read; to talk about at length, and with no clear resolution; to feel and think through on our own; to hear, to listen, to absorb. A friend of mine wrote, "I am grieved but not surprised and that is a very female feeling." I have nodded at this, and other things said. I have been – in turns and at once – heartbroken, breathless, grateful, confused, curious, angry, and ultimately really sad. We’re grateful to have worked with the immensely talented Heroes Are Gang Leaders on our most recent issue. I continue in my admiration, gratitude, and awe for their work and the generosity with which they approached this collaboration. Issue 20 will remain active and live. And until our next new issue goes live, we will feature a favorite from the past: Issue 4 (October 2009). Thank you, as always, for listening. - Hannah Ensor, Co-editor
