Rachel Windward, 2019 editor in chief of Boar’s Tusk Literary Journal said, “The entire literary journal would be impossible without the many authors who contributed their artistic genius, and the reason for this magazine’s existence is due to the many writers, photographers, and artists in Sweetwater County.”
