Welcome, one and all, to our debut issue.
When I started this magazine six months ago, I could never have imagined receiving such a wonderful collection of poetry. Thank you all for trusting me with your words.
Everything has to come from something, right? Everything has to begin. That was the thinking behind the theme of sparks, and every piece in there has echoed that in some way.
There is a lot more I could say about the contents of this issue – but, in truth, the magazine was never about my words. It is, and always will be, about yours.
Without further ado…
Edit: I made the mistake of missing one of the authors on the contents page. This is now rectified.
