Now that our Spring Issue (54.3) has been successfully launched with the help of a wonderful audience and a little (a lot of) Vancouver lit mag love, we’re excited to be passing the torch on to some very capable individuals at the PRISM international office.
We would like to formally introduce our readership to three new editors who will be taking over certain aspects of production for the next year. Without further ado…
