Letter From the Editor: We’re Back!

Illustration by Ayelen Lujan

Dear Ramona Family,

Welcome to 2018!

What a year 2017 was. Personally, it was a pretty epic year for me with the birth of my first daughter, Aurora. I have had a lovely break getting to know Aurora, motherhood, and a new way of life. It’s chaotic and life-changing, but I am ready to throw myself back into Ramona as much as I can whilst keeping a little person alive.

Last year was pretty awesome from Ramona, too, as we grew our community and released our third print edition, which you can purchase here.

We are looking forward to another full year at Ramona. We can’t wait to read your stories, see your art, meet new feminists, and continue to smash the patriarchy together.

I hope you’re feeling full of creativity, hope, and excitement for the year ahead! We certainly are! We have so much awesome content to share with you, so keep your eyes peeled as we return to our regular posting schedule this week. I can’t wait to jump right in!
