Letter from the Editor

In these divisive times, we are at the precipice of greatness. Instead of subduing our voices or using them to antagonize others, we write. We type madly and scribble hurriedly. We communicate boldly and kindly. And, when we’re done, and really proud of it, we publish a literary journal.

If America is going to heal, let it be glorious. And what’s more glorious than writing?

On behalf of Dr. Kimberly Knutsen and Sonja Baumeister, the assistant managing editor, Amber Bains, the student editors and contributors, and myself, I present this year’s issue of The Promethean: The Velvet Night.
