Fall 2017

Letter from the Editor

 

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.
