"Is there any reasonable line to draw between what is southern and what is not?"
With this issue, Southern Cultures completes its fifth year of publication. It’s been an exciting experience and a but surprising at times, but we’re still learning new things about the South and we’re still having fun. As we begin volume six, Southern Cultures has never looked stronger. Subscriptions are up, submissions are likewise, and spirits are even higher. Briefly glancing backward, we’re all very happy to be where we are. Looking ahead, we’re excited about the next five years and more. As readers, we hope you feel the same.
