December Break

Victor Saad


For those of you who’ve been around for a while, you know December is when we press pause. We take a step back from publishing and let the fast-paced holiday season run its course.


This little writing break has become a healthy rhythm. It creates space for personal reflection and time to check in with close friends, past students, and one another. It also gives you one less thing in your inbox during this busy season.

Wherever you are today, thanks for being part of our family. We are some of your biggest fans.
