Here is the letter from the editors:

Dear Attic Salt Readers,

For this year’s edition of Attic Salt, we have expanded the possibilities of the journal, featuring kinds of work that we have previously been unable to publish. In the past, we have had to cut down lengthier submissions to a brief excerpt, and multimedia submissions were not even an option. Over this academic year, we have brought Attic Salt into the digital age, redesigning our website to allow for online publications. Now we publish the entirety of lengthier pieces as well as multimedia submissions online, which moves us toward our wider goal of fully embracing the “interdisciplinary” character of our journal.

In the following selections we hear, among others, the voices of grieving fathers, brooding youths, a forsaken mother, and a mad poet. We travel through a darkened theological forest, all the way up to the indifferent stars. Yet despite the often melancholic quality of these pieces, a profound hopefulness emanates from them. In reading them, we have been invigorated by their depictions of human resilience, by the honesty of the emotions, and by the determination in their search for meaning. We invite our readers to immerse themselves in the experience of this year’s journal and recognize that shadows do not necessarily preclude the beautiful.

We would first like to thank our staff members, who have put a tremendous amount of work and enthusiasm into this year’s publication. We would also like to extend our gratitude to our faculty advisers, Dr. Dermot Ryan and Dr. Alexandra Neel. Additionally, we want to thank the Honors Program of Loyola Marymount University, specifically Dr. John Parrish, Dr. John Dionisio, and Meghan Alcantar, for their limitless support. Finally, we would like to thank Dr. Garland Kirkpatrick for granting us the privilege of working with Justin Lai and Madison Wurster, the artists who are responsible for the utterly beautiful design of the journal.

And to our readers: please, make yourselves at home.

Warmly yours,

The Attic Salt Editors-in-Chief
