You’ll be able to download your copy from our Issue Page here on Tuesday, November 10. Don’t forget the donate link! Our issues are always free of charge, but if you’d like to help us out—especially during these crazy times—we’d love it. We pay our artists $50 per piece, and that largely comes out of our pockets. Help us keep great art in the world—and others escape to 34 Orchard.

    1. Hi! I’m excited too! No, we don’t have a print edition–however, the laid out PDF, when printed double-sided flipped on the long edge and bound, say, on a binding machine you’d typically find in an office, really works nicely. If you don’t have access to any of that, drop me a private email.


    1. Thank you, Priscilla! I DID get your email about helping out–I’ve just been so focused on so many projects all summer (plus Lyme Disease. That was fun. NOT. And I’m still dealing with it). I will respond to you shortly. Thank you for not giving up on me!! And I’ll be so excited to hear what you think of Issue 2!!


    1. Me neither! “Loose Ends” is a gem. During my proofing, I read it aloud. I had quite the captive audience at my day job today. My immediate supervisor really loved your piece! At that one point in the story when she figured out what was happening, she put her hands to her mouth and said, ‘oh my God!’
