2014 is all about good things.

Suck in that Santa gut and get ready to read, witness and create magic in the New Year. You can't use the holidays as an excuse for procrastination anymore and neither can we. It's time to get out of this gorging and gift-giving rut. Kings' Day was yesterday, so you might as well pull down the tree—unless you're into the year-round décor thing, which The Quail Bell Crew doesn't judge. In fact, you're know we're not much of a judgmental group, which we like to consider a boon to our publication. In 2014, we resolve to sweep away any remnants of our "judgy" qualities and go full-force with our commitment to social justice in D.C., Maryland, Virginia and beyond. You know we have a soft spot for the imaginary, the nostalgic, and the otherworldly. Interpreting those words is one of our favorite challenges. We're fairy punks, after all. And this year is all about embodying that identity to the fullest extent.
Need to call us out? 'Accountability' is our middle name. Feel free to contact us at any time with letters to the editor and, obviously, stellar submissions. There's only one thing we hate other than hatred and that's non-communication. The two sort of go hand in hand, or wing in wing, anyway. Don't be a stranger. Visit us as we continue to post quality content each and every day. Remember—we're here because of you.
As always, thanks for reading.

Welcome to our staff blog, where you can learn more about The Quail Bell Crew.
Christine Stoddard conceived the idea for Quail Bell in late 2009 after writing a children's story by the same name, and launched the website as a college blog in 2010. In June 2013, Christine and former art director Kristen Rebelo officially launched Quail Bell Magazine as a global web magazine. Read our editorial mission statement to learn more.
