In our mitigated, cultivated world, is it possible to still be wild? With no wilderness, will our natures turn tame? These are two of the challenges we threw out for our Wild issue, and because writers are creative, and therefore untamed, they came back to us with very different answers. Often the word wild is associated with otherness and primitiveness. Artist Matt Kish explores this idea in his dark, haunting interpretation of Conrad’s classic tale of madness, Heart of Darkness; Lauren Groff’s single female heroine loses herself to otherness in the story “Salvador”; and journalist Inara Verzemnieks chronicles a transient community that colonized a highway rest stop. The doggedly inquisitive Ginger Strand tackles the elusive sex trade in Vegas and traces the not-so-wild roots of the Wild West. Whatever your inclination, we hope you heed the words of Isadora Duncan: “You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.”
