Fall / Winter 2018 “Gathering at the Waters Vol. II”
The Fall/Winter 2018 issue of the Killens Review of Arts & Letters continues with the theme from Fall/Winter 2017, “Gathering at the Waters,” and presents stories and artwork that explore ways in which writers and artists express interrelationships between family and community. This issue features an excerpt from the panel discussion “Gathering at the Waters: A Call for Healing” that took place during the 2018 National Black Writers Conference. It gives only a glimpse of the dynamic conversations that were centered on the ways writers see literature as a healing mechanism. There is also a short story from How Are You Going to Save Yourself, the compelling and hilarious debut collection by author JM Holmes. Also in this issue are captivating images from photographers Shawn W. Walker and Christopher Lopez, who were inspired by the importance of sharing ideas and messages of healing. A selection of original fiction and poetry round out the issue.
