Here and Now Publication Cover

Here and Now is the product of what existence is to the modern-day. Some people expect the absence of sadness is to be happy, but that is not the case. The absence of sadness can leave a lot of different emotions, ranging from melancholy to remembrance to existence for the sake of existence. That is what Here and Now represents. We decided to depart from the very dark themes of our first publication to give this one a chance at being the harbinger of brighter days ahead, even if they seem bleak at the moment.

Let That Sink In is the culmination of many weeks’ worth of our collective efforts at KS. Our first publication delves into many diverse themes spanning equally diverse styles of writing through 28 poems by as many incredible young poets. From Tanjila Akter Mim’s Isobel, The Fortune Teller to Joyita Faruk’s My red is not your red, we believe every poem provides a unique experience for the reader. It embodies a lot of what we want our journal to be, and we hope it is the first of many.
