Welcome to our first-ever virtual launch party! We are so excited to share readings from the Magic issue each weekend. Join us every Saturday and Sunday as we post videos of our contributors and 2020 Lit Award winners reading from their work.
This weekend we begin with the work of Eric Tran, whose poem, “Lectio Divina: Vision, The Vision #1”, was a favorite among readers for its striking imagery and emotional tenor. Our readers noted that Tran’s poems have a heavy emotional quality, which is highlighted by choices of content and language; he is able to access a realm where personal thoughts and compelling emotions appear from unexpected places. We hope you enjoy this poem as much as we have!
