Editor's Note: Fall 2010

As yet another summer closes and the leaves start to turn, we're thrilled to be celebrating our tenth anniversary as an online arts & literary journal. This decade has shown us elation and heartbreak, provocation and comfort, innovation and travesty, and I'm immensely proud that the pages of our magazine reflect much of this political and artistic vicissitude, as well as continuing to embrace the core tenets of the intrepid art and challenging composition that has guided us since 2000.

In this issue, my fourth as editor, we've packed in all the best fiction, poetry, art, photography and prose that we could get our hands on. You'll also notice that several of our editors have contributed examples of their own writing—a testament to the talented people whose hard work and discerning talent is the bedrock of this publication.

So dig in, and enjoy a season's worth of words meant to invigorate and inspire. And thank you, as ever, for reading!
