Welcome, from the editor 

Writing is the act of realising dreamworlds. On the page, the imagination has the potential to become visceral and, in some small, operose way, real. Crafting art is an act of authority where one advocates their vision thoughtfully, with great intentionality and evocation. Works of art are formed by, in and for a setting - be it a moment in time, geographic location or person. It is crafted by, in and for the place where everything within the art was once before it. Art is delicate and sturdy. It has the power to open a dialogue between artist and receiver, artist and world, world and receiver. 

Defined as the state of safety or protection, the word refuge represents the vision of our online publication. We want submissions that respond to global, socio-ecological crises with compassion and thought. We hope you find a refuge here.
