I am delighted to announce release of the Winter 2011 issue of Valparaiso Fiction Review, published by the Department of English and Christopher Center for Library and Information at Valparaiso University. This inaugural issue of the journal contains compositions of short fiction by Andrea Dupree, Clifford Garstang, W.F. Lantry, Meg Tuite, Norman Waksler, and Dallas Woodburn. I encourage everyone to examine this introduction of VFR and read these fine stories.

I want to thank co-editor Jonathan Bull for his wonderful work that made appearance of this literary journal possible. I am also grateful for the tremendous efforts by our assistant editors: Emily Bahr, Ethan Grant, Rob Onofrey, Ellen Orner, and Jeremy Reed.

Valparaiso Fiction Review (VFR) is now accepting submissions of original short fiction by new, emerging, or established writers for the Spring and Winter 2012 issues. Authors are encouraged to visit VFR and follow the guidelines for submission.
