Issue 8

Collecting submissions for this issue has been incredibly delightful. We have seen abstract paintings by 3 to 6-year-old kids, paintings inspired by poetry, and photographs documenting the beauty of our roots. Moreover, we are elated to invite you to our upcoming event tackling art therapy, read a poetry collection by Maysoon Alsoyaidan with Ward Reads, and submit your work for our upcoming themed issue, Language, and other brilliant collectives and platforms through MENA.
