HFR is very proud to thank Jennifer M. Kaufman, of LitStack, for her kind review of the latest HFR issue. In looking at the beautiful, but desolate and alien, cover of the issue, Jennifer writes that: "the journal itself (published twice-yearly by The Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing at Arizona State University) is densely and vibrantly packed with fiction, poetry, and photographs from a remarkably international list of contributors."

When it came to the review of individual works Jennifer writes: "with so many excellent pieces it would be impossible to do justice to each and every one, and of course with such a range, they will each resonate differently for different readers. There were a few – particularly from the women contributors – that I found especially exciting."

Some of the women contributors showcased within the review were: S.E. Smith, Anne Valente, Naomi Benaron, Chidelia Edochie, Anna Piwkowska and Diya Chaudhuri.
