Forgiveness (Issue #92) — Summer/Fall 2022
What does it mean to forgive? We want our writers to delve into what it looks like, or feels like, for them. Or, why might they choose not to. Letting go of grudges and resentment is difficult, often painful work, whether those feelings are towards ourselves or others. This issue aims to explore the complex emotions that come before, during, and after forgiveness — like anger, pride, hurt, and guilt. As well, the ways that we can move past negative emotions without condoning, excusing, or forgetting about an offense, be it through psychology, ritual, or time.

Feel free to interpret our themes in unique and unusual ways.
