If you missed the STARS 2023 Violet Margin Launch Event, or want to rewatch it for the lovely readings and Q&A, here is a special treat! You can view the edited recording of the event. Don’t worry, the edit is only missing the sound errors and the bloopers from the set-up. All you have to do is click the link below and it will redirect you to the video.


Before grabbing a bowl of popcorn for the event, visit the archives to grab a free digital copy of the 2023 journal. Use it to read along with the live readings or check out the past issues of Violet Margin (previously The Alchemist Review). Download the PDFs for sharing, safekeeping, or reviewing on your favorite device.

CORRECTIONS: On pg. 17 and pg. 20 of the 2023 issue, the authors names were misspelled. Carrianne Garner is the author of “Chocolate Milk” on pg. 17 and Christian Heigler is the author of “Brother, Undercovered” on pg. 20. Sincerest apologies to the authors!
