FCEA Florida English Editorial Board Call for Submissions Back Issues FAQ

Florida English

Editors’ Note:

As of this brief editorial introduction, hurricane season has been easy on us, and only one Florida school is ranked in the top ten of college football.  Rising print costs have prompted the Editors to postpone the purchase of promotional Florida English ball caps, but the journal still thrives.  As if the publication of another quality issue is not proof enough of that, we sponsored a coffeehouse on Thursday afternoon, November 9, for the annual conference of the Florida College English Association, this year in Lakeland and hosted by Florida Southern College.  Poets and folksingers participated in the event and there are some recording contracts rumored.   Also, the ’06 edition of Florida English breaks more new content ground with the inclusion of two one-act literary dramas.  We continue, then, to publish a bright spectrum of creative and scholarly work by Florida authors, and writers connected to the sunshine state and elsewhere.  So (as Seamus Heaney began his translation of Beowulf) the editors of FLeng once again extend their appreciation to the various contributors to this publishing adventure, and urge you to keep talking it up, showing it off, and supporting the journey.
