Our inaugural issue features twelve texts, a photo essay and a comic strip exploring instances of imagined, delayed and anticipated grief. We unravel grief, looking within and peering beyond bereavement and loss. We look at grief that has been experienced personally, that is held collectively, that is carried in the body, and sedimented in place.

Co-edited by Anna Yeon, Maddee Clark, Emily Westmoreland, Danny Silva, Soberano and Elena Tjandra.

Our second issue features fifteen texts, a photo essay and illustrations that interrogate the theme of hospitality from all its angles. Contributors have embraced the ambivalent duality of hospitality in their offerings. They recognise the power of hosting and the subversiveness of the bad guest who refuses to sit in their allotted place. Despite this, hospitality is there in the small acts and the other spaces we shape for ourselves.

Guest edited by Alana Lentin, Anne Marie Te Whiu and Anna Yeon.
