To be between, to exist in a space of ambiguity, is powerful. It demands perspective and perseverance, ingenuity and imagination. The liminal, as a space of rupture and uncertainty, is simultaneously enchanting and arresting.
As I, and much of the editorial team, prepare to graduate, it only feels right to reflect our own liminal positionality; balanced on a threshold, glancing back at what was but mainly focusing forward, on what is to come. It is an issue that simply would not have been possible without the dedication and innovation of our senior editors; Emily, Alexis, Nathan, Jacob, Jason, Bryan, and Candace. From increasing our social media presence and website traffic, to publishing more flash fiction and visual poetry, Caustic Frolic continues to expand and evolve.
My favorite moment will always be holding the physical copy in my hands for the first time, content in the knowledge that we have provided a platform for such an abundance of talented writers and artists. To our contributors, thank you for trusting us with your work; it has been such a pleasure to be a part of your creative process.
I am immensely proud of what we have achieved over the last year and I am excited to see the new directions in which the journal will frolic, no doubt boundlessly. To the new team, Caustic Frolic is yours now, but just for now. As a liminal space in itself, with new editors joining and transforming the journal every semester, it exists in a state of flux, ready to be reimagined.
