A Note from the Editor

Noticing a lack of opportunity for long-form fiction writers to publish in literary journals, Tiffany McFee and Aimee Harris stayed up until 3am creating the dream that would become Townsend Literary Journal. One year later, after a lot of reading, writing, and formatting tears, the journal made its debut at AWP in Portland Oregon. This year, we are proud to introduce Townsend: Issue Two. 

A huge thank you to all of you who have helped make Townsend a reality.
