Editor’s Note


“Literature, in all its forms, is amazing in its capability to allow readers to picture the lives of others. But it is incredibly powerful when we can see ourselves reflected in it. When it is our experience and our stories being told by ourselves. For all our writers and readers, my hope is that you find inspiration in these pages. That the stories you read here give you the courage and passion to create. I hope that you find a piece of yourself in the words of others, and if you don’t, I hope that you are moved to write a piece of yourself onto paper and that you share it with the world.”
