AGNI 24/25 is the teeming Fifteenth Anniversary double issue. The work of Lucie Brock-Broido, the feature poet, radiates alongside a sampler of new work by earlier feature poets, such as Melissa Green and Mekeel McBride, and poems by William Logan, Marie Howe, Debora Greger, Wayne Koestenbaum, Eavan Boland, and Linda Pastan. This energy carries over to the fiction in the issue as well.  Stories by David Bosworth, Arturo Vivante, Joyce Carol Oates, Marjorie Sandor, and others take us to the center of grief, panic, and compassion.
