With the onset of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns, the ROPES team, like so many others, has not been able to meet in person. This encouraged us to think of new ways to spread the word (and not COVID) and engage our audience. We’re hoping that this website will provide a new platform for engagement that provides a deeper insight into the creation of ROPES and the people behind it. The days of glamorous publishing (that existed in our minds) are gone. That being said, ROPES online is proving to be a truly hilarious adventure! Some days we show each other our pets and some days we get actual work done; either way ROPES has lost none of its spirit. We still enjoy collaborating on all of the different challenges that bring ROPES to life.
