“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.

for deah, yusor & razan
my spine is tired . from the cracking .
a premonition . this rubble .
a demolition . is coming .
we mistake death's door for a welcoming .
we expect the sail to unfurl at the wind's thrust .
