Hello, and a massive welcome to you all!

It is such a pleasure to have the opportunity to launch Rollick Magazine today.

We have been inundated with brilliant, thought-provoking, and inspiring work. It has been so awesome to read submissions, and go through all the art that has been sent in.

This first issue of Rollick Magazine represents a wonderful collection of intelligence, thought-provoking exploration, and creative interrogation. It is such a credit to the thinkers, writers, and artists contained within. We are thrilled that you have entrusted us with your work. We hope that you will enjoy engaging with this publication as much as we have enjoyed putting it together. It has been (and continues to be) a blast!

Even though today is our official launch date, we will continue to post new work for this issue on a rolling basis. Submissions are also still welcome (and part of our submissions process), so take a look at our guidelines and submit your work!

One of the main purposes of this publication is to promote real engagement with literature and the arts. To encourage discussion about the works published in this magazine, and to support the talent behind it, we are awarding a prize to the most popular post of the issue. To facilitate this, we have enabled voting on each of the posts. You will find a poll at the end of each post. Here you will be able to vote on the works you read/view, and also make comments and have discussions. The community and engagement that emerge around each post will directly impact the Most Popular Most Award.

I wish each of the contributors all the very best. I also hope that our readers have a fantastic time with Rollick Magazine.

Kindest Regards,

Mel Vanroyen
