That’s exactly why we’re here, together, right now. Thank you for being here. Thank you for picking up Toyon, Cal Poly Humboldt’s student-run journal of multilingual literature and art. For 68 years, Toyon Literary Magazine has published works of writers and artists from around the world.
This year’s theme of “Hope and Healing” came about as a means to remind ourselves to take deep breaths and be present in the world around us. The COVID-19 pandemic has radically shifted the ways we live. We mustn’t forget the importance of taking care of ourselves and each other. We hope that you enjoy the theme of “Hope and Healing.” Please allow it to be a reminder to ground yourself in the moment and breathe.
