Join us for AGNI 26, our “Mentors and Tormentors” issue, in which our contributors reminisce on their formative experiences as writers. AGNI editor Sven Birkerts writes that his “desire to ‘become a writer’” roots from “images and grandiose fantasies.” Patricia Storace explores the interplay between writing and cooking and contends that “[b]oth arts embody a dream of perfected action, ‘the word made flesh.’” Donald Hall tells of an unkind teacher and suggests that “one cannot overestimate the influence of rage.” Mariana Cook recollects her apprenticeship under Ansel Adams and offers us a portfolio of portraits taken between 1982 and 1987. Indulge in nostalgic and meditative poetry and nonfiction of AGNI writers Scott Ruescher, Carol Moldaw, Mark Doty, Peter Balakian, Marie Howe, Alan Shapiro, Christopher Benfey, Baron Wormser, Eve Shelnutt, Liam Rector, Howard Norman, and more.
