Thank you, thank you, thank you. Whether you are one of the select- ed artists, a proud friend or family member, an unpublished writer, a curious passerby, or anyone in between, thank you for caring about creative work made by very young individuals. It can take a lot to put yourself out there through writing and art, especially when you are young and still trying to decide who you are. So if you are someone who took the time, even passing, to look through this magazine, thank you for caring about something that is incredibly important to so many people. And if you are someone who submitted to the magazine this year, I cannot commend you enough for your creativity, vulnerability, and bravery. I hope your work will continue to be meaningful and impactful to you, whether you were selected or not, and that you keep sharing it with those around you. Because I guarantee if you do, you will find someone else who thinks it is meaningful as well.
