1 story every 3 weeks from the end of September until the end of December


 In this issue, we explore the gritty work of life-making in a changing world. In an auto-ethnographic poem, Pip McDonald considers the spectre of digital technology.  Sabin Dorohoi taps into the emotions of a child whose parents have gone abroad for work. Diana Hatchett narrates a mother's effort to fulfil her expectations for her and her daughter’s lives. Cosmin Popan & Letizia Bonanno offer a graphic take on the work of platform capitalism in Cluj. Finally, Shivangi Kaushik ponders cracked feet as she observes the work that women quietly do.
