Anna March’s Foundlings
It's been my extraordinary pleasure to launch and curate the Foundlings section here at Literary Orphans this past year. I'm grateful to Mike Joyce and the whole LO crew. Time pressures are dragging me away, but I'm proud to have recruited Anna Short to take over the editorial helm of Foundlings. She will begin with the next issue and I know she will leave an indelible stamp of her own. I look forward to continuing to serve LO as a member of its advisory board and editor-at-large. Thanks to all of the writers who were generous enough to share their work with me in this space. Please do keep in touch with me at anna@annamarch.com. Hope you enjoy this final edition of Anna March's Foundlings, and please do come back for Anna Short's Foundlings.

Editor's Note: Anna March's Foundlings was a column that ran in each issue of Literary Orphans Journal for one year; an exploration of who we are as we discover ourselves. It is an ongoing look at aspects of our identity. The column features author conversations and interviews, fiction, non-fiction, poetry and assorted other forms. Please click this link to learn more about it! We're excited to see Anna Short's takeover of it!
