FCEA FL English Editorial Board Contents Call for Submissions

Florida English 


Editors’ Note:

Well, here we are celebrating our fifth anniversary of Florida English. It’s been quite a trip for us, and we’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings as a mere concept floating on a boat somewhere in the middle of Lake Monroe. Since 2003, we have produced five quality journals, made some good friends, and spread the word about literature far and wide. Our submissions have grown to include writers from as far away as California, and we have been mentioned as a reference in volume 203 of Contemporary Literary Criticism. Just this year, Florida English became a 501©3, tax-exempt corporation, so now you can deduct all of your generous donations to us (and more generous donations will certainly make the FLeng parties more lively). As of last year, Florida English began sponsoring a coffeehouse poetry/music series at the annual Florida College English Association conference. Our first foray into that venue was quite successful, and we’re all looking forward to the 2007 coffeehouse and continuing into the future. With the great strides that Florida English has made, we also are looking forward to our next half-a-decade, and we would like to thank our loyal readers, contributors, and supporters for being a part of our successful first five years. From our humble beginnings on that boat and the first few years when the editors had to supplement the production cost of printing with money from their own wallets, we have come a long way, baby. Finally, we need to express our heartfelt “thank you” to Florida College English Association for its generous support and to Ringling College of Art and Design for a much-needed and appreciated annual donation. See you all in issue 6!
