Stone Soup Magazine: February 2021. Volume 49, Issue 2, 48 pp.

Editor’s Note

One of the main defenses of literature today is that it makes you empathetic—that reading and writing help teach you how to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. Sometimes, in the case of a personal narrative, that “someone else” is even a different, earlier version of yourself.

The writing in this issue explores many perspectives that vary greatly from our own— from villagers in the Ecuadorian jungle to the objects in our cabinets, that perhaps live secret lives; from stray village cats to the bear, king of the forest; from the people commemorated by a memorial (which perhaps they hate!) to mythical creatures.

After reading this issue, perhaps you will feel inspired to explore your own environment and write your way into the perspective of something else that you find there—like your dog or a doll, an acorn or an apple, a deck of cards or a picture of a cow.
