Issue 4: Growth
August 9, 2022
“Growth” did not disappoint when it came to stimulating and thematic conversations. We saw pieces on growing up, growing apart, and growing closer. We also read about growing emotionally, physically, or spiritually, and some work on refusing to grow at all. We read work that turned “Growth” on its head and spun it in wild and unpredictable ways.
The conversation that (dare we write) blossomed from these three authors felt truly special. Through poetry, flash fiction, and essay, each writer sought to remind us that growing is not a linear path forward. To grow, one has to face the past, exist in the present, and prepare for a future of uncomfortable truths.
When read together, these three show that “Growth” is a process of reduction, removal, and release.
That’s our 3cents. Enjoy.
