By early 2020, we had settled on our theme, "All the City's a Canvas," as
well as our design format for this year's edition. We had already received several
submissions; other works that suited our theme were in progress. Then, our theme
became seemingly prescient. Our magazine, our city, and our lives were
vandalized - like a work of art doused with paint - by the global pandemic. Some
submissions are obviously pre-COVID-19 - pieces that peek out from behind the
pandemic's splatter. Others came after - new poems and new illustrations etched
on top of the vandal's paint, turning the vandalism itself into a new canvas.
We hope that Roamings gives you an opportunity to think, to appreciate
the work of talented artists, and to be entertained.
