In this issue of Whitefish Review we explore change and all it means today. We are seeking fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art on the theme of change. We are especially looking for submissions about how people have responded to change, both personal and global, turned challenges into inspiration, found humor in even the most difficult times, and grown in the process. What do loose change, sex change, and menopause mean amid rising sea levels? What are we doing as world citizens, artists, and scholars to adapt to and mitigate global change? What are our sources of hope? What can we say about our society's resistance to change?
Where do we find our wellspring of inspiration? And where are we to go from here?
Change has always been intrinsic to living. Most of us change our jobs, partners, houses, diet, hair, college major, and car multiple times during our life. Some of these changes are forced by circumstances beyond our control, others are our way of making intuitive and creative leaps, rebelling, finding our path and our bliss, taking wild chances, shifting gears. While not all such changes are easy, many lead to very positive outcomes in our lives.
However, we are also living in a time of vast, sweeping global change that is affecting every living being on Earth. The world is heating up, leading to what has become known as the Sixth Extinction. Against the backdrop of global change, our life choices take on even greater meaning. And we are learning that as a society, acknowledging such change entails saying goodbye on personal to global scales-and redefining ourselves and how we live and relate to all living beings.
Thank you to all the writers, artists, and photographers for your support and interest.

*Whitefish Review prides itself on being accessible to the entire community of writers, artists and readers that we serve. Though our nonprofit organization has newly implemented a $3 submission fee to help offset, in part, some of the expenses incurred in producing a literary and arts journal, we still aspire to be as inclusive as possible. If the $3 administrative fee prohibits you from submitting your work, please email email@example.com with a brief explanation of your circumstance and we'll see what we can do to work together.
