Happy Tuesday! Enjoy a new issue of Apex Magazine!

This month we bring you Maurice Broaddus’s guest-edited, highly anticipated issue. Maurice starts the issue off with a wonderful editorial called “Not Here to Check Boxes.” He brings us original fiction by Sheree Renée Thomas, Kendra Fortmeyer, Chesya Burke, and Walter Mosley. The poetry in this issue is by Linda D. Addison and LH Moore. Tanya C. DePass brings us our nonfiction with a fabulous essay titled “Time to Get Serious About Diversity and Inclusion.” Our cover art this month comes from Angelique Shelley. Angelique was kind enough to sit down with our artist interviewer Russell Dickerson to talk about influences and inspiration and more. Andrea Johnson interviewed the lovely Sheree Renée Thomas about her story “Aunt Dissy’s Policy Dream Book.”

You can read the entire issue now online at the Apex Magazine website.
