Prewriting

There’s nothing like a good article to stimulate “prewriting” (or at least give you something to bring up at dinner with your in-laws).  The Anniversary Issue (February 14 & 21) of The New Yorker stood out to us as particularly full of great investigative journalism, contemporary poetry, and humor. Here’s a list of our favorite reads:
