In honor of Issue #16 coming out next week, we decided to promote the artists featured by sharing some of their work with you. Starting us off, here is cover artist Minhal Baig’s powerful personal essay on losing her father.
“The following summer, somebody asks me: does it get better? No, it doesn’t. It never gets better, you just get better at coping, at learning to live with a loss you didn’t choose. It doesn’t matter if it was two years ago or five or ten. I will never get over it, I am committed to this loss. I will carry it with me until I am dead.”
