Today marks the final installment of Ink Pot and, as ever gracious, Beverly Jackson offered those of us who were on staff an opportunity to give some parting words. When she first asked us for this, I started writing an essay about all that I had learned in my couple of years as an editor working under Bev, but then as I read and reread it I realized that it did not at all encapsulate what I was feeling, which was sorrow at the loss but also gratitude for the moment.

Please join me in celebrating those words and thanking Bev for all she has given to writers and artists. So many of us have gotten our start because of you.
