“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.

Everyone in this household keeps
talking about the children
who unlatched the door and
walked out into the snow last night
and fell asleep on the sidewalk
in the howling wind
and never woke up
