The autumn issue of Gulf Stream is here!! Big thank you to all the talented writers who entrusted us with words, to James Kock for the beautiful cover photo and to fellow editors who worked hard to read stacks of submissions. This makes it all worthwhile. I’m very proud of this issue for many reasons. This was the hardest semester, we endured the loss of a dear friend and fellow poet, Chris Cannella to whom this issue is dedicated. We suffered the American tragedy of Trump, we mourned and drank too much, but we haven’t stopped writing. Now more than ever, we keep our faith in words.
Poetry without words, taken in Costa Rica by the Areneal Volcano.
Thank you to Fish Food Magazine for publishing this photo-poem.
