“We took the leap this past year and decided to accept international submissions for Volume Three. Volume One brought together voices within the 1888 Family, and Volume Two featured several new voices alongside familiar friends; it felt like we needed to go a step further—outside of our community, as far as interest would allow.
If arteries don’t split into capillaries, we never grow. We are a circulatory system. The only vacuum is the one we allow to exist.
Welcome to the third volume of The Cost of Paper.”
