FROM THE EDITOR
From the Fall-Winter 2007 issue of Voices:
In 2000, the New York Folklore Society launched a new magazine format, Voices: The Journal of New York Folklore. The purpose of this transformation from the previous journal, New York Folklore, was to provide a forum for the widest representation of the state’s many voices through accessible presentation of folklore activities and scholarship.

Voices continues to reflect what is happening in folklore in New York State and elsewhere. Demonstrating the breadth of research by folklorists and community scholars, the Fall-Winter 2007 issue ranges from essays on domestic arts to a 9/11 memorial exhibition, folklore in education, and folk songs of rural New Yorkers and Native Americans. We now have eight regular columns, in addition to regular book reviews, artist profiles, and the occasional piece of creative nonfiction.

In response to individuals who commented that they would like to know what folk arts programs others have planned, we publish brief folk arts news in our announcements section. As always, we welcome your ideas and your contributions.
