Issue 4.2 Launch Photos

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to celebrate with us last night! Thank you to our amazing readers, who you’ll see photos of here (more to follow!), for their reading their phenomenal work—we were truly impressed by every one of you. Thank you to The Gaslight for hosting us, and for their exemplary bar service—which included holding up a cell phone flashlight so our readers could see better. What a night!

The artwork inside the issue didn’t turn out in the proper colour/brightness etc. Please visit our excerpts page to see some of these images in their proper forms!
