Issue 35, Final Fringe

Sarah Einstein

Sarah Einstein is a PhD candidate in Creative Nonfiction at Ohio University and the Managing Editor of Brevity. Her work has appeared in journals such as PANK and Ninth Letter, but mostly in Fringe. Fringe published her first essay (Fearsome Beauty), her most difficult essay (Dick Move), and the one piece of which she is unabashedly proud (Self Portrait in Apologies). In fact, fully one quarter of her published work first appeared in this journal. When Fringe goes dark after this issue, will she still be a writer? She isn’t sure. She’s come to depend on Lizzie Stark and Llalan Fowler for their support of her work and their unfailing editorial instincts; everything she has sent to them has been improved by their feedback before it appeared in the journal. She wishes them well as they move on to the next things in their lives, but she also wants to fling her arms around their necks and cry please don’t leave me until they agree not to go. Fringe has been a solid platform for writers whose work doesn’t find its way into more mainstream journals often enough; voices saying complicated and important things. As a writer and a reader, Sarah is going to miss them very much. She wishes them all good things.
