One year ago today we began work on Inverted Syntax, not knowing what it would bring into our lives: Inspiring visions, opportunities to work with amazingly creative people, new friendships, enhanced discipline, and unforeseen perspectives.
In this first year, we made it through our first team retreat where we planned and launched our first online issue, and our first print issue, recently receiving a lovely reading recommendation from the magnificent Roxane Gay. We launched our Art of the Postcard series with success and have managed to maintain an energetic blog platform. And if that wasn’t enough, we added a fantastic new feature, the Fissured Tongue series, headed by our Associate Editor Jesica Carson Davis. We introduced our print issue with an awe-inspiring reading and launch party at Dikeou Pop-Up gallery, and we head into year two with our Sublingua Prize for Poetry for emerging writers, running through June 30 and judged by Dorothea Lasky.
We thank our beloved readers, our relentless and dedicated staff, our dear, dear family and friends, and many other supporters for taking this journey with us.
Just wait till you see what we have planned for next year!
Love from Nawal, Jesica, Melanie and Allissa!
