It's been a while.
First, let me say thank you. Thank you for sticking with us; these past couple of months have been really challenging and I'm glad that many of you have stayed and still read our content.
Second, thank you to our contributors: all the talented poets & writers, photographers & painters,... that we were incredibly lucky & honored to feature online and in our first issue.
Third, I'm sorry I haven't been available to you these past few months, I got hundreds of emails and I just couldn't keep up anymore but I've got some days off from college right now so I'm doing my best to read all of them. I've received so many submissions that I still have to review for our second issue (Anatomy of A Melancholia); thank you to all the talented and unique souls that have trusted us with their art & work. We, as a team, are very grateful. I promise that I'm gonna do my best to answer (but know that if you don't get a response from me that it's not personal - I'm doing the best I can, which means failing a lot and trying again and again, and sometimes it means not answering to emails because I forgot...sorry, I'm working on that).
No matter what, I DO believe in you. Try again. Never stop dreaming. Never stop asking for help, never stop asking for more than the 'now and here'. You're worth it and I believe in you. Thank you so much for believing in Peculiars Magazine; it's not much but it's here and it's here to stay if you let us.
A few things before I go: the deadline for our second issue has been delayed. You have until July 31st to send us your essays, photography,... I will let you know which organization we'll be donating to this time. Many things are gonna change (the shipping, for example! There were too many issues with that) but our heart & soul remain the same: we're survivors just like you and you're not alone.
Please, keep going.
