One Year of The Adriatic!
On our first birthday, our editors reflect on making the magazine.
The Adriatic Team, 11th July 2021
Ella: Working on The Adriatic has been a dream come true and a welcome challenge. Borne from lockdown listlessness, it's become a real lifeline for me and the team, providing structure, stability, and sanity. Since we started, I've learnt how to do a lot- designing a website, constructing newsletters, and reading analytics reports without my eyes glazing over! Of course, I couldn't have done all this without my brilliant team: they work so hard behind the scenes to make The Adriatic a thing of beauty, and they never fail. So far, our magazine has provided a home to 52 poems written by 52 outstanding poets- so here's to another year of the mag, and more gorgeous poetry!
Kelsee: Working on The Adriatic is great, because it means I get to illustrate all the wonderful poems! It's always an honour to get to interpret our poets' visions and make something beautiful.
