Our Rose & Thorn Journal: Saying Goodbye.

2 Dec

Join us on R&T's Facebook page!

Hello, gentle readers & contributors:

It is with great regret and sadness that we are “closing down” production of Rose & Thorn Journal after nearly 15 years.

This decision did not come easily, as it is always hard to let go of a long-held “labor of love.”

We truly appreciate our wonderful volunteer staff. (You made each issue shine!) Likewise, the talented contributors of art, prose, and poetry. Your works filled every R&T edition with offerings for readers to enjoy. Thanks also to our supporters, fans, and friends.

Our last issue will be the spring issue in May.
We would love it if you would drop by our R&T Facebook page and leave a note.

Thank you all.

    Hi Kat .. I guess the time has come – 15 years is a long time .. at least you’ll be here.

    Cheers for now – Hilary

    Think I’ll just copy & paste your post to my blog. Don’t have the heart to write something new. :~( xo and thanks for everything you did to keep the journal going and looking wonderful.

    So hard to let something go you’ve worked so hard on. Will be missed for sure.
