Announcing Our New Masthead

Our first year as a literary journal (lit mag?), I had the opportunity to publish amazing authors. When we continued this year, I wasn’t at all prepared for the expanded and wonderful reception we received from our readers and contributors. We made some changes early on, like transitioning into a small press. We put out our first ebook, a short literary series called The Fancy Arm Hole, for which I’m grateful to the authors for allowing us to publish. It’s only our second year, and we are still learning a lot.
