The cover story for our spring issue explores the phenomenon of vicarious trauma among immigrant advocates. The issue also features essays that look at the intersection of disability and desire, the imitation of natural architecture, and the resonance and dissonance between imagined and real landscapes. Other features include fiction by Kevin Wilson and Kelli Jo Ford; poetry by Joy Priest and Kevin Young; and art by Stu Sherman and Beverly Acha.
