    Ms. Gallas, thank you so much for your work! We will be rolling out a new literary journal of, wait for it, illuminated writing in the fall–online–and, ultimately, a miniature, Art-o-mat sized book version (“Blakelight”). You will have dibs on Vol. 1, Iss. 1 (Fangirl sigh). Will keep you posted!
