From the Quiet Room

Hello, dear Readers! Welcome to Volume 5 Issue 1 of Turtle Way! Spring is upon us, and I am excited to bring you this issue. Our Special Interest Section focuses on mental illness and homelessness. There is some amazing photography throughout as well as wonderful prose and poetry pieces. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

But wait! Before you dive in, let’s review a few housekeeping items:

  • WARNING: Please read the “trigger” disclaimer here.
  • COMMENTS: All comments will be moderated to protect the contributors, who have put forth their most sensitive and revealing works for us to read, view, and enjoy. As always, you may send your comments and questions either directly to the author via their contact information, or to me via the contact form here. Your comments may be included in future issues’ “Letters to the Editor” section unless you specify otherwise.
  • SUBMISSIONS: If you would like your work to be considered for upcoming issues, please review our submission guidelines here. Without you, there is no we, and only we can get through life – together, not alone.

Love and peace,
