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.
