Recent MFA graduate Amy Smith will guest edit an upcoming edition of "Stirring" literary journal, which revolves around a theme: Hot Mess. The poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction Smith selects for publication will celebrate "fantastical failures that we can’t look away from, moments when steering into the skid is the best decision. The purpose of this theme is to bring light to situations when we feel we are alone at rock bottom, when in reality, many of us are at rock bottom together and afraid to talk about it." While at NMU, Smith wrote a hundred poems about "one hot mess of a farm," according to a recent call for submissions for the issue.
