Birth Edition

We chose the theme of birth for its versatility; while evoking a chaotic, messy and surreal human experience, it is also the concept of creating new things – sometimes giving birth to an idea and all the pain and thrill that comes with it, the birth of new addictions, awareness, practices, fears. 

Something so human and deep-rooted in our nature, given to writers and artists from across the globe to redefine in their own terms. 

Something for our reader to reflect upon and rethink their own definition of the concept of ‘newness’ in relation to themselves.

This is what the Impeached community has birthed.

One, which is strangely, yet decidedly, alluring.
