Issue no. 1


        We wanted to send this first issue off with a warm thank you to all those who submitted, were published and have helped spread the word about Blakelight. We feel fortunate to be in this position, giving voice to writers whose work we’ve had the honor of receiving. This first issue will always be significant and we hope its words move everyone like they have us.

To an amazing start,

Amani & Israa
