reader. One of our missions is to highlight genres that are not always represented in literary magazines, because of this we hope to see more young adult, romance, and nonfiction entries in the future. Black Fox would be lifeless without the slew of talented artists that have contributed this time around. This issue features the art work of Miriam Perez and Tammy Stone, and we are so proud that they have allowed us to showcase more than one of their pieces. Outstanding poets, authors, and artists are all the biggest part of our success with Black Fox. We also could not do this without Natalie Henry, who continues to spice up our covers of each Black Fox magazine. We are sincerely grateful to all of our contributors and readers. We hope that you enjoy this next installment of Black Fox and that you will continue to follow us on this journey.
