“With the publication of its first issue, Bridge Eight delivered on its promise to help establish Jacksonville’s burgeoning literary culture. The second issue brings Jacksonville to a national market and the nation to Northeast Florida. You’ll read about a bridge in Baghdad in 1926, a boy destroying flower pots behind his father’s greenhouse, the two weeks mosquitos take to starve in Florida’s Osceola National Forest, and how a Oaxaca woman learned to tan human hide. And the entire issue does what Bridge Eight writer Sara Walters says she aims to do: to create “images that feel and sound rather than simply say.”

Tim Gilmore, Author of many titles including In Search of Eartha White, Storehouse for the People.
