DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE PIECE IN THIS VOLUME? All of the work was exciting to me. I was very happy and proud to print local author Melissa Roberts's poem about Portland ("Resurgam: Portland, Maine"), and I also loved "The Great Railroad Train of Art" by our Knightville winner, Kathleen Spivack. I'd have to say that Dan Marmor's story "Recipes for Disaster" is absolutely incredible — a humorous, second-person narrative is almost impossible to craft, and he did it with flair. That said, Ralph Ellison's story really pops out to me. It's all good; what can I say! I'm proud of each piece.
