“What stories are we telling? What narratives are we emulating in our daily lives? This year’s issue of Enizagam attempts to answer these questions,” writes 2019 Editor-in-Chief, Bella Coles. Edited and selected by high school students at Oakland School for the Arts, this issue illuminates first-time authors as well as new work by previously published authors—including the winners of Enizagam’s Literary Contest in Fiction and Poetry, Paula Conway and Dean Gessie. Poetry Judge, Tongo Eisen-Martin describes Gessie’s works as “Genius with a pocket full of broken fetters.” “Conway doesn’t just illuminate the extraordinary, but also shows us the humorous, the visceral, and mystical currents of a seemingly ordinary life,” writes Fiction Judge Shathi Sekaran. With artwork from OSA alum, Eli Fredunberg, befitting our 13th year of publishing—we hope you enjoy.
