Dear readers,

Another year has come and gone. I feel like I’ve barely had time to catch my breath. But it’s true, after completing an astonishing 15 issues, I am so thrilled to share with you the final issue of Interrobang for Volume 54.

From where I’m standing, it seems as though we’ve encountered just about everything this year: war, a continued pandemic, a federal election, a(nother) lockdown, and more. It has been a privilege to be with you all as we went through these things together. As journalists, we have a duty to inform our audience as best we can, and I hope we’ve been able to do that for you this year.

This final issue is overflowing with optimism for the future, with tips from freelance reporter Svitlana Stryhun on how to achieve your goals this spring, guides to summer employment from reporter Kate Otterbein, and a heartfelt letter to her younger self by Aisha Javaid.

Thank you to each and every contributor to Interrobang this year, including the various artists, graphic designers, videographers, freelancers and social media experts who make what we do possible. None of this happens alone, and thank goodness for that.

The future feels as uncertain as ever, but the promise of normalcy inches closer every day. You too, readers, have spent all year just trying to do your best to survive and reach the finish line. And lo’ and behold, you’ve actually done it. In spite of everything, we made it.

Until next time,

Hannah Theodore
