I know that I am privileged to be in the position that I am. As a writer myself I know how much can be at stake with a piece I have written. To have authors who have devoted time and effort to their craft trust me with their work is humbling. This is especially true with a fledging venture like Four Ties. I will be forever grateful to author’s who appear in Issue one volume one, fellow Northern Arizona University students. Hopefully, I can take the trust they have shown me and use it to build a showcase for excellence in which we can all be proud.
