The fall 2016 issue of Water~Stone Review invites readers to experience the “ink face and paper bones” of the Hmong people, many of whom found new homes in Minnesota after the end of the Vietnam War. Nearly 300 pages of poetry and prose capture the continuum of human experience.
Founded in 1998, Water~Stone Review is a literary annual published by the Creative Writing Programs at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Photography is curated by students at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. I’m honored that the editors chose to include my poem, “Visiting Hours,” in their lush and beautifully produced “Paper Bones” issue.
