Letter from the Editors

Dear Readers, 

Welcome to Issue Sixty-Four of The Collagist. In this issue, we have fiction from Carmen Lau, Doug Rice, Meredith Luby, and Wyatt Williams, as well as an excerpt from Youssef Rakha's The Book of the Sultan's Seal. This month's nonfiction comes from Marin Heinritz.

In poetry, we're excited to present a special feature on emerging Canadian poets. This section was guest edited by Eduardo C. Corral and features work from Laura Clarke, Vincent Colistro, Kayla Czaga, Leah Horlick, Michael Prior, Derek Webster, and Daniel Zomparelli

Our book reviews include coverage of Invisible Beast by Sharona Muir (reviewed by Nora Boydston), Show Me Your Environment by David Baker (reviewed by Tyler Mills), Deep Ellum by Brandon Hobson (reviewed by Alex Franks), and Theories of Forgetting by Lance Olsen  (reviewed by Nick Kocz),

As always, we're grateful to all our contributors for making this such a great issue. Special thanks to Eduardo C. Corral for all the work he did curating and editing this month's feature in poetry, and for approaching us with the idea for it.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out the new issue. 

Gabriel Blackwell and Matthew Olzmann
