Editor’s Note

Over the last two years, I’ve had the pleasure of participating in the complete upheaval and rebranding of this journal into the unique publication it has become. Looking back on process of reshaping our journal, I can’t help but notice the parallel between Caustic Frolic’s evolution and that of the members of its editing team.

By Louise Ho
