Alicia! This is beyond exciting and feels like a natural transition and movement of your work. Providing space, encouragement, and visibility for emerging food writers is an incredible thing to do, and kudos to you for taking on that work! 2024 is going to be exciting!

This all sounds wonderful! I look forward to more of your perspective and the chance to be introduced to new voices in the space. I also appreciate you grandfathering in the OG subscription price, although $50 is a bargain for 10 months of supporting independent food writing.

What a brilliant platform you've already created, and what an exciting direction you're taking it! Creating space for writers and readers to engage with your work in a very natural way. Excited to see more details on The Desk Dispatch next week :)

From the Desk to the world! Will be shouting about it from the rooftops.
