Said last week that Mike Callaghan's work fit seamlessly with the words of Eros Livieratos and gave NUNUM's Fall 2019 Issue an opening slice of perfection with 'Suburbs' so here it only feels right to say that Eros's words slipped right into the imagery of Mike's work and banged out an amazing opening for the Fall 2019 issue.
Because of the difficult second year of my MFA, I didn’t go straight through to my Ph. D. Instead, I took a year off, finishing up my thesis and looking into different options. I applied for several teaching positions at universities all over the country. I went to creative writing conferences. I took freelance jobs. But none of that was really what I wanted. I’d learned in Dublin that an author only makes about ten cents for every copy sold, and I knew that wasn’t a stand-alone career option, unless I wanted my parents to support me for the rest of my life.
Amanda Conner slipped a little real world reflection our way for NUNUM's Fall 2019 issue with her piece 'The Time Has Come'. The prose is zoomed and tight all by itself but once we blended it up with some Zelffie from Ling Lui & Tianyi Zhang something flipped and we suddenly found ourselves with another favorite.
