What’s left to say about the most popular theme in the world?

In the call for submissions we put out for The “Love” Issue, we asked for writing and art by the university community exploring the ultimate universal theme. We were interested to see how many different takes on love we could find among our submissions, and USask did not disappoint.

Love is such an enduring theme because it can be felt in as many ways as there are people on this planet. Everyone’s concept of love is something so personal, and it’s an honour to get a glimpse of it in the pieces in this issue.

This issue is the second and last of the academic year 2020-21 — the last the current in medias res editorial board will put together. It has been a critical time for in medias res, and I am grateful to everyone who made it possible for us to grow under the difficult circumstances. Thank you to everyone that has spread the word about our magazine this year, to all the dedicated members of our editorial board, to all the writers and artists who have sent us their work, and to you, for reading.

This issue has been a labour of love.
