This July, as an American publication, we celebrated the independence of our republic. We give thanks for the freedom that we enjoy which allows us to bring this publication to the world. It is easy to critique imperfections, it is harder to enjoy the blessings of liberty that we do enjoy. Here at VOEGELINVIEW, we want to always acknowledge those fruits which make our work possible. We recognize that it is in this great republic of ours that the free flow and exchange, indeed, writing, of ideas, culture, art, and more, is possible.
July was another great and fruitful month for us. We also welcomed the renowned poet and biographer Harry Ricketts to the journal, who published two poems with us. We also welcomed Tod Warner from Word on Fire as a contributor and look forward to his future contributions and prospective collaboration between us. Our continued growth and transition to having a greater emphasis on popular intellectual writing, arts, culture, and book reviews, carries on, as is our ongoing relationships and networking with new institutions and organizations. We now have a collaborative relationship with the University of Dallas’s Arts of Liberty journal and hope to grow this newly forged friendship into the future.
Remember, you too can help spread light in the darkness by following VOEGELINVIEW on Twitter: @voegelin_view. Additionally, this is reminder that we are also on Instagram as a means of digital outreach and growth. Follow and help spread the light in all the areas that need enlightenment. We also launched a dedicated LinkedIn page two months ago as another means of spreading our digital footprint and growing our readership. Follow and or connect via LinkedIn to get your daily dose of VOEGELINVIEW material. Lastly, the dedicated Facebook page to this journal slowly grows; all journal material is published and promoted there and those who utilize Facebook as a means for reading should follow there.
