Dear friends, it’s such a joy to share with you that preorders for my baby music magazine Half Mystic Journal’s fourth issue, around the theme of grazioso, are now open. As the editor-in-chief & creative director at this gorgeously soft-stepping endeavour, assembling Issue IV over the course of past months has been a much-needed ray of brightness in a world that often seems overrun with shadow. I know I speak for our whole team & absurdly talented set of Issue IV contributors when I say that the grazioso issue is full of the rare kind of light that never drowned anything, the kind of light that knows only song.
Contributors to Issue IV include such lovely faces as Terry Abrahams, Devin Kelly, Kate Bucca, Emily Paige Wilson, Jill Mceldowney, Yves Olade, Diane Bluesolis, Sydney McNeill, Emily Blue, Eli Winter, Alexandra Eldridge, & more. If you are interested in joining the magic, Issue IV writing & music submissions remain open until November 17th. Send our team your best, your tenderest work. We’ll receive it with open arms & cradle it like the light it is.
Until then: please do preorder Half Mystic Journal’s Issue IV: Grazioso, to keep you warm on winter nights ahead. All Issue IV preorders will be shipped on December 12th & arrive on your doorstep in time for Christmas; they make beautiful gifts for yourself or the music lover in your life. Preordering Issue IV ensures that we’re able to keep Half Mystic up & running for many years to come – & we have hope that this creation might help draw our aching world out of its endless, cacophonous dusk. xx
