After much thought, the Thistle team has decided that the SYMPHONY Issue will be our last. We appreciate the tremendous support over the last 5 years and have enjoyed looking over thousands of submissions and connecting with so many talented people.
To say goodbye, we really want to make this final issue our best yet. We are going to be combining this issue with our next one, making it "Fall/Winter 2017" and we would like it to be bursting at the seams with your stories, artwork, soundtracks, and ideas. The issue will release by the end of November and submissions close on November 10. You can submit here.
Thistle has been a large, important part of my life since 2012. I have been with the magazine since its creation and have contributed countless hours to growing this publication. I am sad to see it go, but due to time constraints and other projects, Genevieve and I have decided that it's time. We both feel so lucky to have been exposed to the volume of artwork and writing that we've seen while working on this project, and even more lucky to have been a platform for up-and-coming artists to get published. Rest assured, all of Thistle's publications will still be available via Payhip and Magcloud even after we go.
If you have anything to share - thoughts, stories, questions, or of course submissions, please reach out to us. We would love to hear about your experience with Thistle.
