Editor's Notes: February 2017

So, January was a doozy, wasn't it?

This magazine is not a political publication, but I would be remiss if I glossed over the actions of our president since his inauguration on January 20th. Our country is facing an unprecedented level of uncertainty right now, and, for many people, it calls to mind the threats we faced as a nation early in the 20th century.

This is the time for activism. This is the time for artists and writers and wordsmiths to do what they do best. I would love to have the privilege of sharing stories from refugees and immigrants, regardless of nationality, who are willing to write openly about the vetting process and their experiences in the United States. If you're interested, please submit your piece to submissions@ladyliterarymag.com.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the incredible pieces we have featured in our February issue, including one from returning poet Marguerite Bouvard, as well as a stunning new short story from our fiction writer, Anastasiya Chuleyda. This month's issue is designed to get you thinking about the lives of people in your community, outside your inner circle, and the world in a way that, perhaps, you havent before.

Be blessed. Keep writing. It matters.
