The Little Rock-based Oxford American magazine has released the cover and details of its Spring 2015 issue, which will be on newsstands March 15. The issue features Hal Crowther, Jamie Quatro, Ron Rash, Little Rock writer Jay Jennings and Jeremy B. Jones, whose great piece on an ancestor’s bizarre coded diary is online as of this morning. The issue also features a profile of documentary filmmaker Ross McElwee (by novelist William Giraldi), fiction by John McManus and a pretty stunning, ~12,000 word feature in which writer Justin Nobel tracks the path of a tornado outbreak that hit the South in April 2011. The issue also has a special food section curated by John T. Edge, with contributions by recent National Magazine Award nominee Chris Offutt, “Treme” writer Lolis Eric Elie and poet Kevin Young.
