A note from Divya Victor

Jacket2 bids farewell to our fellow editor

It is hard to express how much Divya Victor has enriched and expanded Jacket2 since we first welcomed her as a (then-guest) editor in 2017. From the two commentary series shes contributed, to the thoughtful and wide-reaching features shes curated, not to mention the tireless work shes done behind the scenes to make Jacket2s editorial process more equitable, affirming, and innovative, Divyas presence as a member of the J2 team will be sorely missed. It is with sadness — but excitement for Divya as a thinker and writer — that we say goodbye to Divya as a J2 editor.
