Dear Friends of eMerge,
Here is the Fall 2022 edition of eMerge, our final issue of 2022.
Many of us are looking ahead with anticipation of the cold winter months coming. We hope there is something here to warm you and keep you company, regardless of whether it's Anna Gall's delicious recipe for "Apple Bundt Cake", John Walch's humorous holiday play "Carving", or the bounty of imaginative poetry in this issue (such as Sonya Vann Delouch's "Counting Trees" or C.D. White's "Coup de grace").
eMerge is published with the generous support of the Board of Directors and the staff at the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH). Our website is managed by the incomparable Cat Templeton. Thanks as well to the WCDH community, including residents, alumni, and friends!
Submissions for eMerge 2023 closed on October 16. I can't offer any details yet about what next year looks like for eMerge, however I want each of you who submitted to know that exciting things are in the works for 2023. We have a wealth of poetry, prose, and recipes to sort through, but you should be hearing from me by the end of 2022.
I hope you enjoy this issue and have a restorative, restful winter ahead of you.
All the best,
