Welcome Update #38


Brian A. Palmer, Editor in Chief

A year ago this week I was finishing preparations to make Palmer Grove public. It is so hard to believe that twelve months have come and gone so quickly. The staff has grown from three to eight people, we are finalizing our fourth and final issue for volume one, and are beginning to plan for the next year. It is in moments like these that I feel that it is important to take a moment to reevaluate the past and realign the future. 

The past year has held so many wonderful moments. We released our first issue on July 4, 2011 and received such an outpour of love and support. We have seen staff members come and go. We held our first ever holiday shoot. We have spent countless hours discussing, planning, debating, and laughing over every issue.

 I would like to take a moment to thank the Generation Voices staff, both past and present. Without your love, dedication, and service this publication would not be possible. It is to each of you that I owe the success of my dream. I can only hope that someday you will each understand the depth of my gratitude and awe for everything that you have done. And also thank you for tolerating me discussing random ideas without stopping, ever. 

Moving from here, we have so much planned for volume two of Palmer Grove. We will be revisiting some of the features that were successful in volume one as well as introducing new and exciting features, offers, contests, and communities. Keep visiting palmergrove.com throughout the following year for up-to-date information. 

There is still time for you to be involved in volume one. The deadline for submission to the April 9, 2012 issue is this Friday, March 2, 2012 at 10:00 PM [EST]. We also have a variety of staff positions available if you would like to become more involved.

 Thank you again to all of our readers, contributors, staff, friends and family. Without each of you this would not be possible.
