Deep summer in the deep South means jazz concerts in the parkthey even have them up
North, nowand, somehow, as Issue 36 came together, the complex rhythms and phrasings from such a
range of voices took on that flavor for me.
For our stunning cover art, we thank the very talented Daniel Wallace, just twenty-one
years old. We think his piece, modestly titled "Composition 3," has a vigor highly complementary to the
literary efforts here.
Dan, a painter/printmaker living in Baltimore, Maryland, was born in New York, New York.
He moved to Baltimore in 2001 to attend the Baltimore School for the Arts. He studied at The Glasgow School
of Art in the fall of 2006, and is currently a student at the Maryland Institute College of Art. His paintings
and prints have been exhibited many times at the institutions he attended, as well as by business establishments,
and hang in private collections. Seriously intent on a career in art, he has received commissions for fine art,
logo design and poster design. Next, the entire TCR crew joins me in welcoming new staff: Natalie Baszile, a San Francisco
mother of two and a recent graduate from Warren Wilson's M.F.A. Program for Writers, joins our team as a
fiction editor, and Brian Woodham, currently living in Memphis, TN., is a graduate of Auburn University,
with an M.F.A. in poetry in progress. Brian will assist the poetry editors. Welcome Natalie and Brian!
