A 'journal of post-civilised neurodiversity and wild mind' that over a decade has published eight issues of the magazine: anthologies of art and writing that travel deep into the human (and other-than-human) psyche.

Some are well known writers and artists including Jay Griffiths, Tanya Shadrick, Thomas Hübl, Helen Moore, Susan Richardson and Bill Plotkin. However, many contributors have never been published before...

Patti Smith's Just Kids was one of the memoirs that made my own possible: a love letter to creative persistence & daily attention to chance encounters. Like Whitman’s Leaves of Grass & Thoreau’s Walden, it was a book that made me want to write one of my own at last, just to feel in their lineage, however distantly. Do follow Patti Smith on here if you aren't already - she is sharing things of such fun, generosity and quiet grace: music, musings, work-in-progress.
