Cover Image: “Just Breathe” by Erika B. Girard
Erika B. Girard is currently pursuing her M.A. in English and Creative Writing with a concentration in Poetry through SNHU. Originally from Rhode Island, she derives creative inspiration from her family, friends, faith, and fascination with the human experience. She enjoys photographing (and then colorfully editing) both inanimate objects and animate creatures. Her art contributes a fresh perspective of both life and the world in an aesthetically pleasing way. More of her photography can be found in Montana Mouthful and Beyond Words Literary Magazine, while her literary art appears or is forthcoming in The Alembic, Iris Literary Journal, Untenured, Viewless Wings, and more. She also proofreads for Wild Roof Journal, an online literary journal with issues published bimonthly.
