Editor’s Note (issue 04).

Dear issue 04 readers,

I'm going to be honest. These past few months were really rough for me, and I bet it was rough for so many people as well. Even during the roughest times, I always had something to look forward to. Whenever I read submissions with a cup of pumpkin spice latte after a long day, my day didn't seem that bad. This month's submissions, in particular, were about expressing life's, sometimes painful, dances. No emotions are worth hiding. We all just need to find the right way to let go of negative feelings. Poetry is truly a beautiful way to let out sadness, grief, and anger. I hope the fourth issue gets to comfort you even during the roughest days as it did to me.
