Letter from the Editor

Every night, we find our eyes searching the vast, twinkling expanse above—looking pleadingly for a light to guide us. Search no further. In the canvas of tonight’s evening, 33 brilliant constellations wait for you to meet them. Welcome to the Interstellar Literary Review’s Issue 02.

With April’s end comes Issue 02 in a vibrant shower of shooting stars. Be it the untouchable brilliance of Taylor Brunson’s “In Which Asterion Survives the Labyrinth” or the divine, dream-like power of Ashley Sapp’s “A Day in the Woods”, we find ourselves seeking the tails of light that every piece in the issue leaves behind. We hope you can find yourselves admiring their luminescence just as much.

A huge thank you to each and every one of our contributors: we’re ecstatic and honored that you allowed us to capture your brilliance. A thank you as well to all of those who have submitted to us and supported us—you’re our backbone, truly. And lastly, a thank you to you, our beloved readers, for lending us your gaze, wherever you may be. We’re eternally grateful for your love.

As we like to say: keep your eyes trained to the sky. Trace the stars with your fingertips. Delve into the welcoming expanse of the sky, where shooting stars await, and with them—Issue 02.

 

With love and gratitude,

 

Sunny Vuong
