I don’t know where May went, but I think I enjoyed it.
I’m a little late writing this. At this point, both May and half of June have passed by without warning. I can tell by my slowly dwindling “to-do” list and my Instagram feed that this late spring was a good one. May is my father’s favorite month in the Farmington Valley. I spent my spare May moments in and out of music venues, in Elizabeth Park overlooking Hartford with a notebook and pen, and on my back porch planting my witch garden. And, of course, The Axe Factory.
We will be releasing our inaugural issue on the web on July 1st. Our web edition is free and available to readers, but we also believe in the value of printed media, so we are going to make a print edition available for purchase, with a full-color cover and art plates.
A witch garden if I ever saw one. Verbena, valerian, digitalis, chamomile, and feverfew. Also known as the treehouse garden
Thank you all for everything thus far. In just a few more weeks, all the waiting will be worth it and I can finally deliver to you the work of the very first Axe Factory Press authors and artists.
