Aaaaand it's here!

Issue 11, 'Hiding in Plain Sight' is now out, and you can download a free copy on our website! 🧐

When we're all caught up with whatever is going on around us, we miss out on little details that matter, or maybe are even blinded by something that prevents us from seeing the bigger picture of a situation.

This quarter, we're presenting you with pieces that imply secrecy, hidden gems, and/or mind-boggling insights on life. Enjoy!

We think we can all agree that this quarantine has affected us in many ways. As a band, some of the hardest things we’ve had to overcome and accept is not being able to see each other to practice, perform, and spend quality time together. With the help of Pepo Daradal, we put together this home made performance of our original song, Be Mine. We hope you enjoy this little treat and you guys are always on our minds. We hope everyone is staying safe and don’t forget to wash your hands and wear your masks. We love you and we miss you! 👾

Something as minute as a pistachio croissant
on a warm summer day in the shade,
eaten gradually yet still too quickly,
brings forth a numb, subtle pain. - Max Miller, "Heartburn"

Although known to be an ancient Celtic symbol, the origins of The Green Man (sometimes Green Woman) is a mystery. This wild mythical being is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth or the cycle of new growth. Art by Paul Bommer 🧐

Issue 11, Vol. 3 "Hiding in Plain Sight"

The other day, I met—well, not really, I just saw one of his videos—Johann Hari. He wrote a book called Lost Connections, where he uncovers causes of depression and anxiety. He points out that in the early stages of mankind, humans were able to survive and thrive in the wilderness, not because they were any bigger or any smarter than all the other animals, but because humans were good at working together and communicating with one another as a tribe.

Now I won’t say that this generation isn’t constantly communicating with one another—I mean, we can even be obsessed with it! I just think that it’s easy to miss out on opportunities or decline human connection because of so many distractions from streaming sites, social media, video games, etc. I’m not saying they’re bad because I’m always grateful for it. Without these inventions I wouldn’t be able to reach the artists I’ve talked to or the talented contributors, and well—you! This online publication brings us closer, and makes us grow familiar with each other even without meeting in person.

I think that’s what this quarter is all about—the things we miss out on all the time, but always had right in front of us. I must say that this quarter was fun to make. It was a bit longer, and the process was more patient compared to the others we’ve had. It took its time, and took a lot of effort in listening and observing, carefully trying its best to get a message across.

And alas, the message is here, so thank you for being our dear reader.

Karen Anderson-Singer, the artist behind Tiny Doors ATL is with us this quarter, and I’m excited for you guys to read and get to know her! And just like last year, we have new music for you. Two bands—The Metro Fantastic and Intertwined—join us this issue, and share songs that will undoubtedly be part of New Reader Mixtape 2020—The Pandemic Playlist? Ha-ha!

We’ll think of a better name.

In the meantime, here’s Hiding in Plain Sight. I hope you enjoy the stories, the poetry (there’s a lot), the people, and of course, the adopted artworks!

On behalf of the team and the contributors, thank you for being part of another quarter. Despite the challenges, it’s nice to know you’re there and supporting the world of arts and literature. Stay safe, dear readers!
