ISSUE ONE: JUNE 2020

 

Letter from the Editors

Thank you for supporting Flare Journal.

Our missions is to encourage creativity from people of all backgrounds. Issue One received submissions from 27 states and countries, and we wished that we could share it all. Although prevented by circumstances to publish in-print, we hope to in the future!

We are excited to see what Issue Two holds in store! As always, submissions are free and rolling. Please continue to create and share your work.

We’d like to bring your attention to our ongoing Ocean Conservation Awareness Giveaway. Flare is holding an open call for all writing, art, and photography related to the ocean, and we're happy to be able to give two winners a care package! For details, head to the Competitions page on our website. 

Again, we thank you for supporting our mission. 

    Happy reading!

Enjoy the Issue,

~ Michelle and Manasi, Editors-in-Chief
