CONTRIBUTORS' NOTES




EDITOR'S NOTE ON VISUAL ART:
All art in this issue is by Irene Hardwicke Olivieri, whose work we encourage you to support. The artwork throughout is truly a gift, to us as well as our readers. I would also like to say that, though Irene's work was recently featured in Orion, I first encountered her paintings through the music of Angela Faye Martin, of whom I likewise cannot speak highly enough. Many thanks to Irene and Angela. -CM
