Change is natural-it's beautiful, it's cathartic, it's necessary. But change is also painful, and ugly, and destructive. It's one of life's only constants. You can either embrace it or struggle against it but it's unlikely you could ever stop it.
Inside this anthology we are confronted with many different forms of transformation. Some lift the spirit, some crush the soul, and some show the pathway to the future.
It's difficult to capture the essence of a true metamorphosis, but like the chrysalis, this collection contains the "goo of change," so to speak. These 27 Ohio writers have provided touching and ephemeral poems, intelligent and hilarious nonfiction, and fiction that spans from the distant past to the distant future all while being somehow grounded in the present.
We hope this collection of stories, poems, and essays manages to take your breath away, break your heart, and even inspire change in your own life-because there's no time like the present to break out of your shell, spread your wings, and embrace your own metamorphosis.
