The Cover of AGNI 90

Mirrors of experience, refractions of the heart. Imagine assembling a kaleidoscope with a trove of colored gems, then looking into the eyepiece. From the deeply vibrant color fields of artist Laurie Goddard’s cover and portfolio, to—among many riches—moving and finely worked essays by Rilla Askew, Clifford Thompson, and Jodie Vinson; strong torquing poems by Hope Wabuke, Noah Warren, and Kevin Prufer; and stories by Lavinia Liang, Crystal Wilkinson, and Stephen Dixon, AGNI 90 circles through a vast emotional spectrum and leaves you feeling the world has been mysteriously rearranged.
