Letter from the Editor

Dear Issue 03 readers,

 

I don’t want to hold you any longer than I should—the talent of these pieces speak for themselves. The weight that every contributor’s words hold fold galaxies in on themselves, leaving only a vacuum of silence for us to revel in the gravity of their lines. Welcome, dear readers, to Issue 03.

 

As always, love and galaxies’ worth of light to our wonderful contributors, submitters, and staff. There are no words to express the depth of my gratitude. Thank you for light-years and light-years from now.

 

All that’s left to do now is let this issue speak for itself. So look to the sky, enjoy the quiet company, and let Issue 03 take you away.

 

Always yours,

Sunny Vuong
