Amanda Yskampís "The Sentry" marks the third in a series of broadsheets and minisheets we're publishing leading into celebration of THE2NDHANDís 10+ years of publishing with "All Hands On: THE2NDHAND After 10, a Reader," currently in fund-raising mode.
The issue also features illustrations by longtime T2H illustrator Andrew Davis and Nashville wood-block printmaker Martin Cadieux, whose THE2NDHAND block was used in custom prints of envelopes housing collections of broadsheets from our 10-year history. The pit bull in "The Sentry" stands guard in a robust section of new work that leads the "All Hands On" collection. Yskamp lives in and writes from the 10-year floodplain of California's Russian River. Her work has been featured in, among other magazines, Threepenny Review, Hayden Review, Caketrain, Redivider, and the Georgia Review.
