Read TWD Magazine 4th Collection Interviews — Beginning Wednesday August 1st

Hello Y’all!

Thank you for your patience! Much has personally happened to me during the past few months and I needed to take time to resolve some things. I would like to sincerely say that I’m truly, truly grateful for all of your work; this magazine is a work of love for me and I’m passionate about everything that it represents. For that reason, it was a struggle for me to postpone the release of the 4th Collection because I felt that I was letting everyone down. Now, I’ll be starting up again, and I would truly love for you to join me as I continue doing what I’m most passionate about.

Beginning Wednesday, August 1st, you’ll start seeing the interviews from those who will be joining The Wire’s Dream family. I hope you appreciate the words that each have to say about their creative process and about their work.

Thank you again for your support and for continuously being the wonderful people that you all are.

Christina Lydia

TWD Magazine 3rd Collection Class Roster!

#HappyNewYear #HappyNewYearEve

Wishing you all a fantastic & wonderful New Year. I’m humbled to have this opportunity to meet the creators of TWD Magazine’s 3rd Collection. Editing is truly a work of love & passion (w/a bit of healthy obsession) — you have to truly love it.

And I truly loved putting together the 3rd Collection. My aim is to honor & respect the creative work of each artist (b/c writers are artists too). SO! w/o further ado, here is the class roster for the 3rd Collection!
