“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” - Audre Lorde.
A collective comprised of Canadian and American writers. We are committed to seeking our liberation through our self preservation, and to seek that self preservation through unpacking all we have inherited. We are the children of diaspora, we are cast to modernity, we will live defiantly, and we will seek truth.

every time my father would ask
if he still had an accent
i wanted to tell him
your accent is the only correct way
to pronounce these foreign words
instead i shook my head
and he looked pleased with himself
