Fall 2017

One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest. – Maya Angelou


October is here, and with it the 2017 Fall Issue.  I am also pleased to share our 2017 nominations for  Best of the Net in the areas of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. Congratulations to the nominees.
