Dear Odders,

In 2 years of this blasted pandemic, I have uncovered the value of crisis, sorrow and bereavement. I have read beautiful poetry and stories giving odes to sorrow as if it were the finest Venetian Silk, seen tears slip through like the famed Indian Muslin once slipped through a ring. So like Rilke discovering beauty in solitude, I tell you to cling to your oddness, your brash laughter, the act of taking a breath like an everyday revolution. 

I am honoured to present:

Odd Poetry: Angelline Schellenberg, Gordon Meade, Ivan de Monbrison, Mathew Friday and rob plath

Odd Shorts: Catfish McDaris, Glen Armstrong, Keith Hoerner, Liam Pezzano, Mark Russo and Peter Cherches. All stories are illustrated by Lizzy Campbell
