Shown above is our first cover, from the summer of 1995, drawn by Pat Melody. Our premier issue featured works by Chris Kratsch, Gg Weber, Heather Nairn and many others — including the original founder, editor and publisher, Randy Cromwell.

This year will see one new issue of Pith. It is going to be amazing. Next year will have two issues. 2019 is up in the air. By 2020, the plan is for Pith to be quarterly, as was the original intent. Your moral, emotional, and spiritual support is essential and integral to this endeavour. I thank you all.

Still in the planning stages, the next issue of Pith is already beginning to take shape. As always, it will be better than the previous. Your input is very much desired. firstname.lastname@example.org

Today saw a lot of design work. Don't get too used to this layout. More changes are coming soon.

The e-mail connection got re-established today. It was a rush to look back at some of the submissions from years past. We're really looking forward to the new ones that are coming.

Pith has always existed without any paid advertising. There have been a few issues that would not have happened without the generous support of some donors who wished to remain anonymous. We are still immensely grateful to those individuals who made sure that the mission of Pith could continue.

As you've noticed, it's been over a year since the previous update. Like most of the world, Pith, too, had a pretty eventful year. Stories will be shared and toasts will be drunk! (It always cracks me up when Melba gets tipsy.)

As has always been true of Pith, there have been at least as many behind-the-scenes stories as there have been stories in the magazine itself. I will share a few of the more interesting ones as time permits.
Be patient. It's going to take a while.
One cannot fully understand the story of Pith without also knowing the story of Coffeehouse Ghiberti. Quite literally, without that coffeehouse, Pith, the Magazine would not even exist. Thus, it behooves us to discuss that part of history.
Links to Previous Issues...
(It will happen, but not right away.)
Ways to purchase current and future issues...
(This will take a little while, but there will be ways to get copies of the print versions as well as the upcoming online versions.)
(There are actually quite a few things that I'll be adding in the coming months, that will completely blow away what we used to do here. You're gonna love it!
