For this, our 20th Anniversary issue, we decided to forego most of the celebration. We could have phoned all the news bureaus, blitzed our web pages with all things balloons and confetti, and collected sponsors who promised to run Olympic-sized torches through town. Instead, we decided to spend a bit more effort and focus directly on the matter at hand: literary writing.

You'll find in our Fall 2022 issue more reading than usual. In fact, this is our biggest quarterly effort to date, and includes four prose pieces from first-time authors. Applause goes out to these new writers as well as our other contributors, and those who trusted us to consider their work.

The past twenty years has seen a lot in the world of literary publishing. The past twenty years has seen a lot of everything, in fact, as you surely know. But one thing that has remain unchanged is the fruit of Summerset's dedication and hard work, brought to you faithfully, each quarter – never an accessing fee, never a submission fee, never an advertisement.

"How do you expect to survive without notable revenue?" you might ask. The answer is simple: When you love something deeply, you find a way.

We hope you enjoy our Fall issue thoroughly enough to inspire you in some way. Drop us a line and let us know how we're doing? We love to hear from our readers. Best wishes for the fall season –

J Levens
