We’ve been struggling to find words for a week. We, who work with words — words are our lives. But we have had a hard time finding them. Here’s the thing: words are everything right now. Stories and poems are vital to our collective future. Reading words and writing words. Feeling words and sharing words.

So here are some words:

We stand against misogyny.
We stand against xenophobia.
We stand against ableism.
We stand against homophobia.
We stand against transphobia.

We stand against hate. Inclusiveness is at our core. Our journal publishes excellent work from a broad range of voices, and it always will.
