Editors' Picks Series
June 04, 2013
Just as many readers have a favorite piece from a past issue, the Bellevue Literary Review editors have writings that have resonated with them long after publication. These are pieces that stood out in the slush pile, that are still vivid even years after first reading them. These stories, essays, and poems are particularly engaging and thought-provoking—the writing smart and alive—and deserving of another turn in the spotlight.
In our Editor’s Picks series, we showcase these favorites alongside commentary from the editor who selected the piece. The latest pieces to be featured are:
- "Girls, At Play" by Celeste Ng -- a story Senior Fiction Editor Ronna Wineberg chose for its "lasting, disturbing power."
- "Someone Else's Pain" by Brenna Working Lemieux -- Poetry Editor Jason Schneiderman writes, "This poem talks about the difficulty of understanding. The obstacle that most literature works to overcome becomes the subject itself."
We hope you enjoy the stories, essays, and poems selected as Editors’ Picks. Check back as this list grows, and also explore our archive to find some of your own favorites.
