The Language Issue


Welcome, readers, to our third and final issue of 2022. In this issue, we look deeper at the role of language in shaping our lives, our relationships, and our world. We have love languages, expressions of grief, ways of processing trauma and creating hope. As an access point, language gives shape, and is shaped by, our sense of self and our sense of community.

We’ve curated an outstanding array of creative work for you to enjoy. We have 7 stories, 12 poems, 8 pieces of creative nonfiction, and 4 works of mixed media. Please enjoy this winter issue and share it with your friends.
