In the Greek alphabet, the letter Delta is represented by Δ. River deltas get their name based on their resemblance to this character. Δ is also the mathematical symbol for change. At Oyster River Pages, we know the value of deltas—those liminal spaces where land stops water and water eats land, where rivers find their journey’s end and new beginnings, where life as we know it ceases and is ever reborn in countless limitless, shapeless forms. We invite you to dig deep into the silt of the deltas you know. Send us your narratives, stories, poetry, and art of change and transformation, of expansion and unification, of re-formation and re-creation.
