Imagine if animals could talk: what we would learn, and how we might be different, and how much chatter we’d hear every time we entered a forest! In the fantastical stories in this issue, there is a talking, magical butterfly and a shape-shifting goddess of the forest. There are gods at war with humans over leaves. And there is a lovingly reared pig, who must be sold at auction. In the poems, there is nature in its real—and ever-strange and unknowable—state. In the art, fantasy and reality meet. I hope you will enjoy the magical, the animal, and the natural in this issue!

Best,
Emma
