    Hello blue banner,

    I am Joan and I have been in contact with Timbi about joigning but still could not find the appropriate time to do so this spring semester. Now that I am finally able to. I was wondering if the journal is on break during summer and will restart in August? If yes, please let me know when you will start meeting and recruiting as I would love to be a part.

    Thank you very much in advance.
