'It’s a putting oneself into a space of deliberate uncertainty. Stepping into the unknown. A practicing in that space. Training. It’s about thinking provisionally. Speaking small. Not for all.

'It’s about languaging. Being attentive to words, to meaning. To the meaning that can be smuggled in however unwittingly.

'It’s about taking seriously – which might have nothing whatsoever to do with being serious.'  (Introduction)

    'As I sat down to write this, I realised that this is the second project that we’ve worked on together during a lockdown. Although we devised the theme for this issue between lockdowns (sitting in a café – imagine that!), the bulk of the reading and curating was done while the city we both live in was well into its fifth (or sixth – I’m losing count) lockdown. And solitude makes for a strange context in which to work creatively, and collaboratively.' (Sarah Gory and Elena Gomez Editorial introduction)
