With over 50 authors including Fay Zwicky, Peter Rose, Jill Jones, Tony Birch, and John Kinsella, the work collected in Westerly 62.1 is complex and powerful. Unthemed, it ranges in scope and focus to deal both with questions of violence and trauma, but also present moments of beauty and hope.

Issue 62.1 also introduces the work of the participants in the Writers’ Development Program 2016.
