Redivider, 12.2, 2015

I have been interested in reading Redivider for a while so was happy when Cherie sent it; a publication by Emerson College – two by one institution in a land of dwindling print literary journals is pretty amazing (Ploughshares is the other). Gender of authors published seems fairly equal. Interesting content. This issue contains the non-fiction flash winner; interestingly, both the winner and runner-up pieces are written in second person. The two fiction pieces that stood out most for me are Charles Haverty’s “Kites” for well-developed characters and a vividly enfolding plot and “The Lesser Horsemen” by Keith Rosson for unique perspective and story; Rosson’s has been nominated for a 2015 Pushcart Prize. The poem “Grown-Ass Man” by Benjamin Myers also stayed in my mind for a while. Really enjoyed the whole issue and don’t recall skipping or skimming anything in particular.
