Welcome to the inaugural online edition of Florida English.
This issue collects the poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and art from writers and illustrators from around the country. We want to thank FCEA for their support of this journal, Courtney Ruffner Grieneisen and Jeff Grieneisen, who were excellent caretakers of the journal in its print form, and our editorial reviewers who carefully read and evaluated each of the selections. We are also indebted to our web designer, Josh McCall, who created a beautiful space for us to showcase these new works.
Our vision was to not only create a quality, peer-reviewed, Florida literary journal that embraces the textures of Florida living, but also one that is expansive enough to allow readers into other worlds, creating a platform for novel, divergent voices, offering an aperture into avant-garde writing and art.
