A LETTER FROM THE EDITORSThe Tygr Literary and Art Magazine has been in production since 1989, unifying the worlds of art and literature into one publication. The Tygr has grown and changed with the years and its many iterations. This year, the Tygr has changed once again with the implementation of digital submissions for works of both art and literature. This has been an exciting time for us, the staff, because of the new ease of access that digital submissions allow for artists, writers, and our reviewers. We are also seeing a new unity between the art and literary sides of the Tygr. The Tygr has always existed to blend the worlds of art and literature, but this year, it was our goal to emphasize the unity between the two departments and the cohesion that can exist between visual form and the written word. We chose the theme of unity to recognize the efforts and progress made by our artists, our writers, our faculty advisors, and our staff to create a beautiful anthology of work where the imagined lines and divisions fade. The following pages of poems, paintings, photographs, and stories are the result of countless hours of work by writers and artists on Olivet’s campus. We hope you enjoy their work and reflect on the unity that binds together the pages, the work, the artists and writers, the staff, and you, the readers. “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” - Psalm 133:1 (NIV) Sincerely, The Editors Luke Jungermann and Hannah Shiner
