Dear Sail Readers,
With our 36th issue, we are celebrating our 3rd anniversary and starting our 4th year of running Sail eMagazine. Our journey has been a beautiful one, with many ups and downs along the way. Starting with only 2 members to now reach almost 25 members between writers, editors, and illustrators. Some members are still with us since the first year, some have left, some has rejoined, and new members are always joining us and adding new flavors to the team.
What started as a simple idea to bring back the reading and writing in the community has outgrown itself into having an amazing creative art team, strong editorial team, and a versatile team of writers from all aspects of life and all ages, and of course, an amazing community of supporters who believed in what Sail eMagazine is about, and always looked forward to viewing the new issues month by month.
No words can describe how grateful and humbled I am by where we reached. And I’m hoping together we will reach further and newer heights always.
We are planning to host a bi-annual discussion forum in which we will have Sail team panels discussing their articles, artworks, and editorial views, and allowing the audience to ask the team and discuss with them their points as well. The dates are still not decided on, but make sure you subscribe with us (by filling this form here) and follow our social media accounts to stay updated with our news and upcoming event.
In this month we have 2 new members joining our creative team: Anood AlMulla & Mai. You will see their creative artwork brightening from this issue onwards.
