We have reached yet another milestone – the completion of our 3rd season of publishing. To be honest, it sometimes seems like it was only a year ago when we produced the first issue! As JTV moves into summer and our regularly scheduled break from printing, we will continue to gather and post stories to our website regularly, and update email subscribers weekly. Before you know it, you’ll be thumbing through our October issue! There are many exciting things coming up before fall comes back around (way too quickly as usual), so please make sure you subscribe via our website, and click the “follow” button on our social media pages. We’ll be announcing the 2024 Joshua Honors nominations very soon, launch public voting, and give you updates on the Joshuas Honors Galla happening at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, October 20th. We may even have a summer gathering, so please help us stay in touch!

On a personal note:

The love for this community was strong and sincere long before the thought of creating this publication was even a glimmer of a thought. But 3 years, 25 issues, 1,108 pages, and 2 Joshuas Honors Galas later, my sense of awe, wonder, and deep respect has grown beyond my ability to put into words. It is a true blessing to provide a platform to shine a light on this supremely deserving collective of creativity, love, and beauty. Thank you.
