Guest Editor

Potroast has been lucky enough to have a third editor for Issue 10!

Boris White has joined the Editorial team as the Guest Editor for Issue 10 to give a new and fresh perspective while we looked and read through the masses of submissions we received this time around.

We are just now coming to the end of our Editorial selection process. It’s been exciting, and it’s been tough. Really tough.

Thank you Boris for all your assistance and support.

Thank you to all of you who submitted your work to Potroast. We enjoyed reading and perusing your work.

The individual emails will start going out this afternoon.
