A Brief Interview with Suzanne Keyworth
Regarding Her New Book, Markers, (interview), 98
this issue of Florida
English received what
can be described as a windstorm of submissions from across America, and
particularly from the sunshine state.
The editors are very pleased.
We are sorry, too, that we could not print the majority of the
work read. But do keep the
interest and support coming because we plan on being around for a while.
Included in the journal for the first time are two interviews,
which means that we are now considering for publication short interviews
with authors. In addition,
if you have published a book of fiction, non-fiction, or poetry and
would like the Editors or an Editorial Board member to perhaps review
it, send us a copy. Thus
this third issue of FLeng
breaks some new content ground.
Do you like the sobriquet FLeng?
We hope so, because that is what is getting stitched on our ball caps
when we have enough money left over to order such postmodern
extravagances to give out as gifts to particularly diligent or generous
supporters. Donít hold
your breath, even though associate editor Richard McKee is considering
selling one of his guitars to fund the hat project.
We are still very much non-profit.
Meanwhile, keep spreading the word; keep sending us stories,
articles, poems, etc.; and continue to share Florida
English with your friends and colleagues.
We truly appreciate your support.
