We send writers art, who write what the colour inspires.

The new fiction and art collaborations aim to confront forms of oppression by naming them and showing their effects, or by providing positive alternatives to stereotypes depicted in mainstream narratives. We share these collaborations to alter the way we are socialized, and celebrate the beauty of the world that is often missing.
