Among the writers we’ve assembled here you’ll find redemptive rhetorics of weather, decipherable stars, children who don’t speak for years, parents who can speak no longer, people calling people animals, signs of disappearance, a word that’s given, then is folded like a map to secret places, some “small speakings,” and several foreign languages.

Meet the contributors of MQR 57:4, our special issue dedicated to Caregiving.
We’re so excited to announce the forthcoming release of our Fall 2018 issue dedicated to Caregiving & Caregivers. This week we’re featuring several pieces online as a prelude to the issue.
“Caregiving isn’t just doing things for someone, it is an attitude toward the doing and toward the person and the person’s body. It’s a turning toward the other.”
