It all started in the summer of 2017... 

Instead of studying for my summer classes. I wanted to make something even better than a final essay. I wanted to make a magazine. So, I got some awesome and creative people to get behind the idea. 

We started on Wattpad but we wanted to take it a step further. Our own website. 

The name of the magazine came from an article I once read about representation in literature. It talked about how everyone needs mirrors and windows in literature. Mirrors, being a metaphor about a person seeing an experience and recognizing it as their own. And windows coming from a person who gains a new perspective . This is what I hope that the readers take away from this project.
