Spring has arrived in New Hampshire with its potpourri of green shoots in gardens, early blossoms, and longer days of light. And the latest issue of Smoky Quartz—another beautiful spring collection—is now online. Many thanks to the writers and artists who’ve shared their poetry, prose, and artwork to create this issue.
We dedicate this issue in memory of Gail Hersey, a member of the Monadnock Writers’ Group, who is remembered by a friend for her “personal warmth, and her wonderful, unique writing.” Gail’s poem, Kintsugi, appeared in the fall 2015 issue of Smoky Quartz.
We hope you enjoy this issue, and the coming days of summer.
