Plank of wood, metal, stone beneath the door. A boundary. An opening. The point at which something begins or changes. That “there, we’ve arrived; now, let’s cross over” moment. Consider the threshold of pain, of love, of language. What happens when you approach, remain, and/or take a step to the other side?
This issue’s collection of prose and poetry starts in one place—a mindset, an emotion, a room, a life—and moves toward another. We’re excited to present fourteen contrasting, beautiful voices that respond to the question: “What’s next?”
