October 15: Haunting New Content!

by Michelle Donahue, Managing Editor

New content for October is here! Celebrate Halloween with Flyway by checking out some haunting fiction (“What Haunts the Endless Night Sky”), an essay ending with terror (“A Summons to Macon”) and poetry that begins with a dead body (“Body Farm), poetry that creates spooky setting (asphalt cloaked in thinning skin of ice, “Man Whole,”) and poetry that features shadowy oaks and stalking owls (“Should One Stare Down a Bull’s-Eye a Blink Would be Unnerving”). Also check out our (mostly) black and white visual art.

Spikey Map

We invite you to peruse:

  • Fiction from Cassandra Lopez
  • Nonfiction from Larry Verburg
  • Poetry by Mary Ballard, Jennifer Tappenden, and Brian McCarty
  • Art by Eleanor Leonne Bennet 

Also, Flyway is pleased to congratulate Mary Quade whose essay “Hatch” was listed as a “Notable” by the series editor of the Best American Essays. “Hatch” was first published in Flyway‘s 2012 anthology. Congrats!
