Under the stewardship of a guest editor or team of editors, each issue focuses on a geographic area overlooked by the initial collection, beginning with South Africa and then Australia. Later issues will move into translation and will incorporate other themes. The site also will contain an archive of select user-submitted work, peer-reviewed by an editorial board.
