Leaving Vine Leaves was not something I particularly looked forward to. In fact, I spent quite a long time deliberating over whether I had to do it. But time is a fickle thing and doesn’t seem to allow for bending the hours and adding extra minutes here and there. This has, therefore, been one of the hardest decisions I've had to make.
I’ve loved every moment I’ve spent working with Jessica and the rest of the team here. It was a true privilege to read all of those amazing vignettes. Sometimes the authors made the screen blurry because of the tears clouding my eyes, other times they made my heart jump up into my throat. The talent in Vine Leaves Literary Journal is stellar, and I am proud to say I was able to help present that talent.
You might still see me around here and there (a few things to finish up and help with). But for the majority I will be off on other adventures cascading down rivers of words and hiking up mountains of corrections. The adventure of Vine Leaves is one I’m saying farewell to and I will miss it dearly.
I wish you all the best in your endeavors!
