Editors' Note

The past six months has been a time of transition for Gulf Stream Magazine. We have been working diligently to make the switch from a print publication to an online magazine, and are pleased to share with you our most current issue, #29.

Although we are pursuing fundraising options that will enable us return to a print publication in the near future, we are very excited to be publishing online at this time. This opportunity has provided an avenue for types of artistic expressions the print journal was unable to foster, such color photography and audio clips.

We encourage you to explore the site and to read the fiction, nonfiction and poetry that has been selected from a pool of talented writers. Also, check out the artwork and photography from up-and-coming, as well as established artists. This issue also features two interviews—one with singer/songwriter and spoken word artist Henry Rollins, and one with nonfiction writer Alison Smith. Smith’s memoir, Name All the Animals, was named one of the top ten books of the year in 2004 by People Magazine. There is also an audio recording of Smith reading from her book during the Writers on the Bay reading on October 30th, 2008 at Florida International University.

On behalf of the editors and staff of Gulf Stream Magazine, we hope you enjoy this issue, and that you check back with us in the spring, when we will be launching issue #30 online.

All best,

Corey Ginsberg
