Editor's Note
Bay Laurel  |  Vol. 2, Iss. 1  |  Spring 2013
May 2, 2013
Austin, Texas, U.S.A.

Dear Readers,

     We apologize for our belated publication this time around. Personal circumstances required us to push back our release date, but we couldn't be happier with the pieces we're sharing with you. We have twenty poems and one short story for your reading pleasure. These works showcase a wide diversity of voices, experiences, and styles, sent to us from across the U.S. and around the world. We thank our writers and readers alike for their patience during the last few (tremendously rough) months. We hope the poetry and fiction of these incredibly talented wordsmiths convince you that our Spring 2013 issue was worth the wait.

Thank you for reading,
Timothy Connor Dailey
Founder and Editor-in-Chief

P.S. While the stories and poems in this issue were carefully chosen, publication itself was somewhat rushed. Please excuse errors, format issues, etc. Thanks!
