For 2019, we give thanks. Curlew Quarterly does not exist without our contributors; and I'm grateful to have met and worked with each of the authors and photographers who have offered their talent and their time this year. And this evening I'm very much looking forward to carrying this endeavor into the new decade, which will be our finest and most prolific to date, the Roaring Twenties.
All of my best,
Isaac Myers III
