The Summer Issue | 2022

It’s been a long, hot summer here in Prague. We’d rather be sitting in a cool lake than in an office, but at least we can submerge ourselves in great writing. This issue marks B O D Y’s 10th anniversary, and we’re grateful to have made it this far — thanks to you, our readers. Herewith, we present the best poems and stories that came our way since the last issue, along with a few of our favorites from the past ten years. As always, we’ll be rolling out our content over the next four weeks or so of our Summer Issue, so check back daily for great new writing.
