From the Publisher’s Desk

I saw my first rhubarb shoot pushing its way through the gravel at the front of our Wolseley backyard parking pad this morning. I enjoy more sunlight, fewer clothes, geese heading north, and family meals in our porch.

This issue of Rhubarb has been a long time coming, but you’ll see it’s worth it. “Mennonite New Music” looks at the groundbreaking work of new music composers, from Randoph Peters’s operatic works to songwriters and performers in the band Royal Canoe. All good. MORE>

Call for Submissions

By Victor Enns

Rhubarb’s theme for our next issue, R38, is Gender.

What does gender mean to you? We’d like to hear from writers, poets and artists that self identify as Mennonites, whether your submission is fact, fiction, a bit of both, a visual image, or poetry. Deadline: October 1.
