Dear reader,

Welcome to the online portion of Sunstroke: our webzine. As we take a leave from the next print issue, we wanted to work on providing some kind of regular content for our engaging audience. We now have a new staff that will be helping us provide that regular content through imagery, words, activism, and art all in the form of a website. We will be posting a few times a week. You will also be hearing from me once a month, where I provide a letter with my own words, images, playlists, and more. In honor of our new website launch in the month of October, we shot and directed a halloween-themed short film here.

In the future of editor letters, I will be providing a lot of creative writing and monthly reflection, but this month, I’m mostly excited to announce our latest chapter of Sunstroke.

As for submissions, we will be taking them on a rolling basis for the website. Send any articles, poetry, photography, photo series’, and artwork to our email (sunstrokemagazine@gmail.com) to have the opportunity of being featured on our site!

For now, enjoy the website and the few blog posts we have up and be sure to keep your eyes open for more posts and content. Put us on your favorites tab.

Yours truly,
