Postscript Magazine No. 4 (the Reverie Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. For our fourth issue, we explore the theme of REVERIE, sharing stories of introspective realities, transcendental liberation and escapism. Featuring artists, academics and activists from the UK, US and across Africa, the issue questions the ways in which we can find hope in a chaotic world and considers the bridging of different realities to create new narratives about ourselves, as well as our communities.
Inside, you’ll find interviews with London-based doctor and writer Samara Linton, a conversation between artists Krista Franklin and Hamed Maiye and a roundtable discussion on sex and sexuality as African women. Throughout, whether in editorials or essays, we cover a host of topics on the multiplicity of self, the politics of pleasure and Afro-surrealist storytelling.
Postscript Magazine is a cultural anthology bringing together the multiplicity of perspectives of socially engaged and critical thinking women. As a journal, we aim to produce inspiring and informative content reframing women of culture in contemporary conversations. The publication focuses on a single theme per issue and features in-depth articles and essays, interviews and contributions from inspiring modern women. Released bi-annually, readers can expect to find topics relating to art and culture, alongside editorials and original works of artistic expression.
