Excerpts of poetry from poets Junie Desil (eat salt/ gaze at the ocean) and Natasha Ramoutar's (Bittersweet) newly published collections and a fiction excerpt from Francesca Ekwuyasi’s Butter Honey Pig Bread.

Lots more to read and share. Continue reading to see what else is featured in Rungh - Volume 7, Number 4.

Also, stay tuned for Volume 8, as we plan to launch a redesigned Rungh site, with a bold look and navigation that encourages you to linger and delve deeper into our growing content. Rungh will also be adding some “destination reading” with the gradual introduction of Columnist(s) and our growing list of initiatives and archives.

We hope you enjoy Rungh's newest issue and don't forget to send us your thoughts and feedback and share with your family and friends.

THANK YOU for your ongoing support of Rungh! Let us know what you would like to see more of.
