Introduction to the Sustainability issue
"This where the art of telling true stories comes in. To read these fascinating and suspenseful, probing and pragmatic, wry and witty, outraged and determined, engaged and valiant dispatches is to know that we can shift from paralysis to motion."
"It is my fervent hope that this issue of CNF will help bring at least some small measure of clarity and urgency to our global 'failure to communicate' about the challenges facing us."
"This issue offers insight into the work, heartache, and challenges of publishing a literary magazine—and perhaps that's the most fitting way to make this milestone."
"Telling stories is how we try to make sense of otherwise inexplicable events."
