Welcome to the 2007 edition of the Cornfield Review: Online, a showcase of work in digital media, graphic design, illustration, writing, and photography from artists and writers around the Central Ohio area. This edition leans heavily towards the visual. In addition to the charming illustrations offered up by 5-year-old Jake Amrine (reminiscent of a young Bill Watterson, of Calvin and Hobbes fame), we also have a striking collection of digital photography from several OSU Marion students in our Lightbox section, courtesy of Mary Fahy's digital photography course. Additionally, we have a poem from Kurt Moore, local poet, online publisher, and reporter for the Marion Star.

Also in this edition, we have two poems written by Karmin Bowers, a continuation of work found in the 2007 print version of the Cornfield Review. We publish these works as a means of remembering Karmin, an active and loved OSU Marion student who passed away earlier this year. She, along with Aris G.J. Kasotis and Paul Denver Griffith, was one of three students that our campus lost this year in tragic accidents, and we hopefully help to preserve their memory on this site.

We always welcome and encourage feedback, so please tell us what you think. Additionally, if you have submissions or questions that you would like to send us, we welcome those as well. Please direct all correspondence to mccorkle.12@osu.edu.
