This is my last issue! I decided to step down as editor of Ribbons to give more time to my writing and publishing business. I appreciate all the enriching experiences I have gained putting together four memorable issues. I thank all the poets who trusted my revisions, praised me for my hard work, valued my attention to detail, and those who have taught me to become a better editor. Ribbons Winter 2021: Volume 17, Number 1 is now available on Amazon. Thank you so much, Hemapriya Chellappanfor your beautiful artwork.
