Letter from the Editors:

We are pleased to present to you the Spring 2021 edition of The Willow Literary Magazine. As a club, we strive to provide a place that encourages and celebrates the creativity of all Salve students. The Willow has been a platform that allows young writers, photographers, and artists a space to share their fantastic work with the community, and it has been our privilege to be a part of it during our years at Salve Regina University.

The hard work could not be done without the help of Design Services, especially Ryan Miech, and we want to thank them personally for all their ideas and collaboration. Thank you to our wonderful staff and e-board for all the hard work and dedication over the past two years. Thank you to our lovely advisor, Dr. Jennifer McClanaghan, for her guidance and support throughout our time at Salve. Finally, a thank you to everyone in the Departments of English, Communications and Media for giving us the education and skills needed to create this magazine.

This is our fourth and final semester working as Co-Editors-in-Chief, and our third semester with an online publication, which has given us the opportunity to accomplish more and expand as a club. This semester is especially exciting because we have created a brand new website for the magazine that houses past and current digital publications, as well as other supplemental materials. We are very proud of what we have done for The Willow over the past two years as co-editors, and we are excited to see how the future editors help the magazine and organization grow.

We hope you enjoy.

Sincerely yours,

Emily Grant ’21 and Isabel Thornton ’21
