Starting Over: The MFA online magazine
The theme of the Spring/Summer 2021 issue of Multiplicity Magazine has particular relevance in our present times: Starting Over.
This past year has been a period of reflection and a re-assessment of where we are going. In the words of the editorial staff: “…we explore the meaning and experience of beginning anew. In personal essays, poems, and photographs, our sixteen contributors reveal surprising truths about life after losing (or leaving) a loved one, immigrating to a new country, fleeing a religion, or making a discovery that changes everything about the past—and perhaps—the future.”
Writers from the United States, Australia, Germany, France, and Nigeria contributed essays and poems. Each of the contributors reflect the diversity of our world. They range in age from –twenty-five to seventy; describe themselves as Black, Latinx, Southeast Asian, and white; and identify as straight, bi-, and gay. They are well known and unknown. All have something to say, and they say it with grace and power.
