Dear Yen,

Yen magazine issue #64

Thank you for being there.

Thank you for being a voice of reason in the crowd of vapid, patronising publications on the newsagent’s shelf. Thank you for introducing us to women who are smart, creative, ambitious and hard-working.  Women who are actresses and musicians but also illustrators, ballerinas, journalists, designers and game-changers.

Thank you for championing the arts and inspiring creativity in your readers. Thank you for sharing bright photography, books and art of all kinds.

If frankie is the artsy, quirky, awkward teenager then you are the cool older sister, worldly-wise and completely in control, with the good advice and the enviable wardrobe. Thank you for sharing your wisdom honestly and respectfully. Thank you for treating us like intelligent people who can make up our own minds.

Yen magazine issue #88

And most importantly, thank you for your genuine voice full of warmth, compassion, and humour. I never expected a magazine to feel so much like a good pal.

You will be missed.
