The editors of the Bellingham Review are pleased to announce the publication of Issue 77, our eighth annual online issue. Inside you will find a collection of fantastic new hybrid work, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from 14 writers. You will also find a section titled Tropes of Disability, showcasing poems, essays, and interviews by recent Peabody Award winner DJ Savarese, Jillian Weise (and her alter ego Tipsy Tullivan), Stephen Kuusisto, and Donna Minkowitz.
Issue 77 also features the late-19th and early 20th-century Pacific Northwest writer Ella Rhoads Higginson. Higginson’s work spent decades in near-complete obscurity, until now thanks to the recovery efforts of Laura Laffrado.
David Scherrer’s exquisite photo Water Wall is featured on our cover.
We hope you enjoy exploring and sharing Issue 77. Stay tuned for a series of spotlights from this issue’s contributors, forthcoming on our blog. Each issue is a collaboration with both our writers and our readers. We are so grateful for your support.
