In our first piece, join in on a group of tenth graders in a class that is part sex-ed, part anatomy, and fully remarkable. Written by Josh Sippie and published in Neuro Logical Literary Magazine, it’s called “Boys and Cows.”
Our second piece, titled “Whimsical Abortion Procedures,” offers options you may not have heard of, involving storks and confetti. Written by Amy Collier, it was published in The Rumpus.
“Diverse Scene Welcomes Second White Woman,” writes Krissy Howard for The Hard Times. Of course, all the guys driven to punk shows by their mothers have something to say about it. Our third and final comedy piece.
