Li-Young Lee, the judge of The MacGuffin’s 21st Poet Hunt contest, is featured in the latest issue of The MacGuffin. Lee’s three-poem spotlight serves as an island in the midst of the ocean of Nonfiction we’ve included. Read about Erin Callister’s ever-evolving relationship with jasmine and take in John P. Kristofco’s account of a parking lot panhandler. Of course, our usual curation of poetry, such as Destiny Dorozan’s “Ode to Tools,” and fiction, such as William Jay Weissinger’s “The Good Boy,” can also be found, this time enveloped in the vibrant cover art of G. Davis Cathcart.
