News, Notes from the Editor

“The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation.”–Rodin

Please join me April 6, 2013 at WordFire where I’ll be participating in a publishing panel and leading a proposal workshop during a one-day writing conference. History Press author Cheryl Anne Stapp will also be in attendance to represent the author perspective in the author-editor relationship and share her publishing insights.
