Issue 2: Winter 2018

Our first issue of eMerge Literary Magazine was well received and garnered many kudos from around the country: our Winter issue promises to be just as stellar. It has been a delight for me to read and edit this issue’s poignant submissions. Of course, like all enterprises, it takes a dedicated team to pull off a formidable project like eMerge. I want to take this opportunity to thank my team:

  • Sandra Templeton, our artistic editor
  • Cat Templeton, Commandant of the Code
  • Woody Barlow, the Writers’ Colony very own Tarzan in Chaps

Without their patience, assistance and guidance, this endeavor would have never become a reality. Our guiding principles, from inception, have been to provide a platform for both established and emerging writers and artists to publish and promote their literary and graphic works.

We received a lot of feedback on how we might improve our online magazine after our first issue went live and have endeavored to make improvements to eMerge. Not only are we interested in what you have to say, but our authors and artists would also like to hear from you.

We encourage you, dear reader, to visit Eureka Springs, Arkansas and stay at the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow, where you can enjoy an environment that stimulates the creative processes. Whether you are writing the great American novel, your mother’s favorite recipe book (we have a Culinary Suite available for this type of project), or composing the next music score for an award-winning movie, the Writers’ Colony is the perfect retreat…anytime of year!

Until next time,
I remain,
Just another Zororastafarian editor wondering why his imaginary friends quit talking to him
