I very much hope that you will enjoy our latest issue with subtle, evocative poetry by Sarah Arvio, Stephen Cushman, Michael Glover, Fawzi Karim, John McAuliffe and Robert Pinsky; compelling, and highly original, prose by Shushan Avagyan, Jo Baker, Arkadii Dragomoschenko, Michael Ives, Ana Lucic, Joyce Carol Oates, Kate Pullinger and Alan Ziegler; and trenchant critical articles by Andrew Cowan, Aleksandar Petrov, Vera V. Radojević and Christine Simon. And all of this work thrown into dramatic relief by the technically accomplished, and haunting, artwork of Christopher Le Brun RA, our Guest Artist for Issue 7.
Finally, our readers will note that we have on this occasion published work in Arabic, thereby setting the stage for Issue 8 which will include contributions in many different languages, in accordance with Interlitq’s raison d’etre: that of being a literary review truly international in scope.
Wherever you may be in the world, may I and the other Editors of The International Literary Quarterly take this opportunity to extend our best wishes to you, and we look forward to welcoming you back three months from now.
With warm regards,
