Earlier this week my boss walked into my office and asked, “What is this thing everyone’s congratulating you for on facebook?” I didn’t know what he was talking about until he mentioned Jen Bartlett. The night before, Jen and husband Bryan had each posted pictures of Bryan and daughter Abby posing with the inaugural copy of Solidago. I mentioned this literary journal venture at the end of October. True to our word, the first issue was released the day after Thanksgiving. I just got my copy today! We used Createspace at Amazon for printing. It’s a print-on-demand service that allows start-ups like ours to get moving with little capital investment. Having someone else print my photos always makes me a little queasy, because you never know how they’re going to look. Createspace did a decent job. For $6 bucks it’s pretty darn good in fact! I’m so proud of our first issue, and I’m anxious to get started on our second. 2017 is going to be a great year for art. I can feel it!
