The second issue of the Saint Katherine Review is out, and I'm excited to have an essay, "Watching," included. This is a wonderful new literary journal published by the good folks at Saint Katherine College in San Diego, California, including an impressive group of editors:
Scott Cairns (Editor), Kathleen Norris (Nonfiction Editor), Claire Bateman (Poetry Editor), and Caroline Langston (Fiction Editor). (Check out my previous posts about Scott here and here. And one of my posts about Kathleen Norris, here.
I love the cover art on the first two issues, including this issue's image, "Guardian," by Anne Emmons.
My essay evolved from a couple of blog posts I did a few years ago about caring for a friend who was dying:
"Watching, Dancing, and Fishing" ... and
"Catch and Release, and 'Watching' Continued."
So, if you're a writer who blogs, keep in mind that your posts are fertile ground for future essays.
The SKR describes itself as "Inquiry Seeking Wisdom: a journal of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction and reviews." You can subscribe to the Saint Katherine Review here.
