And Just Between Us....

Emerging Voices began three years ago this month. This is our twelfth issue. We’re pleased to continue to expand the nature of our offerings. Your interest as a subscriber provides a base of support for which we’re grateful.


March features the work of Caroline Locke addressing the climate emergency as an innovative interdisciplinary artist. Poet Ariel Resnikoff uses language to create bridges between cultures and individuals. Hannah Mentz celebrates Zimbabwe’s fortieth year of independence with portraits of forty of its citizens. 


Lily McLeish and Tamara Werthern, co-founders of Fizzy Sherbet, a playwriting venue for women all over the world, talk about their project and provide readings from three plays, all available on podcast. Photographer Daniel John Bracken examines liminality and how ‘queer time’ influences his work. Once again, I reflect on my own life experience, filtered through the gaze of being an elder. 

We're setting up a chat room for contact on a variety of topics. It will be for subscribers only. If you've not yet signed on as a subscriber, we invite you to do so here. It's free; its purpose is to let you know when new materials are posted; and it helps build a readership community.

With warmest wishes and hopes coronavirus will become an ever-shrinking presence in our lives.
