Today I delivered many copies of the literary / art journal that has taken me several months to produce. But it’s finally here: Mending Reality: creativity towards change. The process of making a new journal has been highly educational for me. Aside from understanding the editorial and layout processes better, I’ve learned quite a bit from the contributors in seeing how they address issues I care deeply about.
In starting this journal, I really didn’t know what sort of response I’d get. I was surprised but happy to get submissions for this first issue from some folks I’ve never met. And many people supported this process who I’ve thanked in the journal’s introduction. As always, I do nothing alone.
I’m planning the next issue to be released in the fall and hopefully the journey continues!
