Dear readers,

Synapse is back in its third year as a fully digital publication. In 2014 we went from a tablet-only magazine to an online multimedia platform for a big reason: to put you, the reader, first. Now, everyone can read our work, at any time.

By making this decision, our readership has exploded. We had more than 3,000 hits to the website on the day the first website issue came out and have since seen a steady stream of clicks. Thank you for your interest.

Unfortunately, journalism can’t be produced without costs. If you enjoy our work, and want to see it continue, we invite you to donate to the magazine. Whether it’s $1 or $100, we appreciate any contribution. We see any gift as an affirmation that the public supports helping quality journalism thrive.

Stay tuned to read even more important, thoughtful journalism.

Camila Molina, editor-in-chief
