The July - September 2020 print issue of Sentinel Literary Quarterly

Here are well-crafted poems and stories that please, surprise and shock as they explore the human realities of our time; our loves and our losses, our peace, our wars and festering social wounds inflicted by mankind on mankind and by enemies mysterious and invisible.
