| Well, it's been awhile... we're glad to be back.
I'm not sure how many online literary journals exist on the Internet, though I think anyone who can publish for more than two years is doing splendidly, considering the abysmal state of the economy, as well as the waning interest in quality literature. I'm not the only one who's grateful to other editors who give up their time, including much of their own writing time, to make sure that the voices of poets and writers are read/heard across the globe.
I realize this issue is way overdue, but I want to thank you for your patience, your words, and your support. We'll be back on schedule in December/January, time and funds permitting. Meanwhile, enjoy the poems and stories and art that are in the August issue:
