Our Spring 2019 issue features a section of powerful writing inspired by or responding to NAR Contributing Editor Terry Tempest Williams's 2003 collection of essays The Open Space of Democracy. It's also our pleasure to celebrate National Poetry Month by publishing the finalists for the 19th annual James Hearst Poetry Prize. Dana Levin selected Alan Elyshevitz's strange, beautiful, heart-wrenching "Bread" as the winner.
