A Word from the Editor

Happy New Year! We wish all our readers and contributors all the best in 2018! Thank you for your continued support of the Same.

2017 was a wonderful year in us, in that it’s the year our journal was born! We’ve had more success than we could have dreamed of, and we are excitedly looking to the future for how our journal will grow in 2018.

One thing in particular we are looking forward to is introducing a new day of content each week. Starting this week, every Tuesday we will publish between one and three pieces of MicroWork from talented women writers. If you’d like to be a contributor, you can submit your work here.

Also, we are working hard on our first annual anthology. We don’t have a hard publication date yet, but it will be announced soon. Hopefully, by the end of this month! I know you’re going to love it. It will contain some of the best work we received in 2017, as well as some previously unpublished work that I know you won’t want to miss!

Today’s issue is being published a little late, because I ended 2017 terribly ill. I hate that it effected my publication schedule, but I’m well now and I’m looking forward to sharing this week’s issue with you.

In Issue 5.1, we are proud to bring you a nonfiction piece by Mara Buck called “The Obligation of Rubber Bands”, a short story by Anita Goveas called “Station Announcements”, a poem by Annie Hilenski called “St. Mary’s Road”, and an interview with poet, Carla Cherry. We know you’re going to enjoy these pieces by these talented women authors, and we hope you will connect with them all online.

Thanks again for your continued support, and we wish you all the best in the coming year!
