Silver Leaves Issue 1: Inaugural Issue

Issue1_500_1024x1024“We hoped to put together a journal that is lovely to read, with a great mix of academic, articles, reviews, fun snippets, creative pieces and gorgeous artwork. As a team we’ve been dreaming of this for a while and it was difficult to be patient and let it evolve . . . We wanted this journal to highlight not only the academic and creative work that Tolkien inspired but also the incredible generosity of spirit that exists within this community. Silver Leaves is intended to celebrate that and focus our readers on important ways that we can help others.” ~ Lara Sookoo, Editor in Chief

“This journal is a milestone of our dedicated team. We grew together, laughed together, wept together, worked hard together, and now… The result is before you. I am thankful that we persisted; that each of us has strong points and together we make up a cohesive whole . . . May Illúvatar, himself, shine his blessing on this début release of Silver Leaves.” ~ Jo-Anna Dueck, Journal Administrator
