Current Volume: Volume 1 (2017) Windows

Editor's Note

It’s been a pleasure working with my editors and advisors to put together the 2017 publication of Brushing, titled "Windows." In keeping with the previous issue’s precedent of a inspirational theme, this year’s call for submission challenged writers and artists in the Rollins and Winter Park communities to consider their perspectives through their work. I’m pleased with the response: the pieces featured in this year’s journal offer a vibrant array of experiences to read through and enjoy. I’d like to thank Brushing's editorial staff, advisors, writers, artists, and readers for their invaluable contributions to this issue.
