We wish to acknowledge all of the writers who submitted to Verandah this year. We were thrilled with the originality and quality of the work we received. Thanks to Anson Cameron and Ouyang Yu for their contributions, and Chantel de Sousa for her brilliant cover and her patience. We would also like to encourage the many talented writers whom we simply did not have room to publish – keep writing and submit to Verandah 17 next year!
