This fall season, we present to you the first issue of our literary magazine. The Compass is more than just a magazine; it is an insight that spans the globe. The Compass is a concept that entangles the entire world with a single string. Being a part of The Compass has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am so grateful to be working with such lovely people to capture life in a magazine.
We have an entirely devoted team of people who are committed to making a positive impact on the world through their work. The love we have for one another helps us to walk through the thorns and collect those lovely roses and embed them into our magazine.
The world's most creative minds have collaborated with our magazine to bring you a collection of the best pieces of art, poems, stories, and articles. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who took the time to submit their work to our magazine. Our magazine would not be possible without your help. You all are the nurturers of The Compass.
Finally, I dedicate this magazine to all those who strive to be the best versions of themselves and make a difference in the world. I hope you have a good time with this issue. I hope you find ways to stay connected to The Compass, a magazine that is dedicated to making the world a better place to live in. And, lastly, I would like to express gratitude to our dear readers for associating with us. We promise to strive hard to bring you the best pieces with every issue of The Compass.
