Issue 18: Spring 2023

Dear Friends of eMerge,

Spring brings warmer days, longer days, brightly colored flora, April showers, and a new issue of eMerge! I'm delighted to present Issue 18, filled with meditations on color, whimsical monologues, a delicious pesto recipe, and nature galore. Additionally, this issue also touches on what it's like to have a diagnosis, feel an absence, or long for understanding. Each moment is human; each moment matters. I hope you enjoy reading these unique pieces as much as I did.

eMerge is published with the generous support of the Board of Directors and the staff at the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow. Our website is designed and managed by Cat Templeton. We are currently raising funds to continue publishing in 2024, so if you enjoy this issue please consider making a small donation here. Even a small contribution will help us continue publishing writing from emerging writers that intrigues and inspires.

Until next time.

All the best,

Joy Clark
