Greetings and Salutations;

The Vernal Equinox, also known as The Rite of Spring, is nearly upon us. Trees are finally beginning to bud and jonquils are peeking their heads up through the awakening earth. Winter is (almost) behind us!

I'm excited to announce that the second issue of Mused, the BellaOnline Literary Magazine, will be unveiled on the equinox with wonderful, luscious new spring-themed poems and art as well as short stories and a new category: Plays. If you've not had a chance to see Mused yet, stop by and take a peek or two.


Mused is also now accepting submissions for the next issue - please visit the Mused site for further details.
