Spring 2011

Spring has long been emblematic of birth and rebirth, a celebration of life, and our issue appropriately reflects that tradition. This is evidenced immediately by the number of submissions we received, which was much higher than in the previous issues. Additionally, while some contributors are finding life in our pages for the first time, Dennis Fulgoni is celebrating a rebirth. He was a featured contributor in our inaugural issue. And while his first submission was a nonfiction reflection on the art of being a writer, this issue highlights his fiction, which is an accurate reflection of his original post.

This was an especially pleasing issue to work on, though it presented its own set of unique challenges. One common thread presented itself throughout—this is an issue filled with the highest quality writing available anywhere—digital or print, America or the world.

We are a young journal, but, as you’ll see from our writers’ bios, we are developing a reputation as one of the premiere places to find quality short fiction and poetry. And while several contributors from this issue are quite accomplished, others are just cutting their teeth in the publishing world. No matter where they are in their careers, all of our contributors demonstrate an incredible ability to put words on page, to transcend simple sentences and paragraphs and stanzas and achieve powerful writing that lives and breathes off the page, as well as on it. Until next issue.

Good Writing,
