Winter/Spring 2019 ISSUE: Table of Contents

This issue of Light is dedicated to our beloved contributor Mae Scanlan (September 8, 1931-February 5, 2019). For decades, Mae’s irrepressible wit could be found in The Washington Post Style Invitational and British magazines and e-zines such as Lighten Up Online, Literary Review, and The Spectator. As for Light, she appeared in almost every issue (print and online) from the mid-’90s on, contributed often to Poems of the Week (launched in 2017), and was our featured poet in Spring/Summer 2009. You’ll find more about Mae’s inspiring life here.

“The secret of life is the voyage,
And just how one copes with the journey;
So laugh, love and hearten those lives you take part in,
Until you go out on a gurney.”
~ Mae Scanlan
