Night Forest Journal issue 1
Attention radicals, anarchists, poetic-freaks, lovers of freaky poetry, savage kids, eco-nerds, feral folk, witches, individualists, nihilists, primitivists, zenarchy weirdos, rebels with tribal tendencies and the anti-political!
Night Forest Journal issue 1 is a collection of poems, stories, essays and images, for your psychic-wanderings.
Thank you to all of you who have sent in your creativity, whether that is as poetry, essays, art or short stories. We are very happy to announce that the first Night Forest Journal is complete and ready for you to read.
We the editors wanted this project to be a space of raw unapologetic desire.
What it has become is far more beautiful than we imagined it would ever be.
This space was intended also to be a confused place, caught between beauty, joy, fury and sadness.
For reasons we did not expect, we are sad not to be sharing this space with a friend. Tyler Dixon’s pieces are particularly beautiful to us, for reasons that are plain and not confusing.
The confusion we are voicing is that of being caught between the renunciation of pessimists and abjectionists, and the optimism of revolutionary’s and salvationists. Rather than either of these narratives, our authenticity is drawn towards an absurd desire for life, that is not blind to the death that is Leviathan.
We apologise for this to no one. We are not seeking to prove anything to anyone. We are aligned with no ideology or flag.
This journal is the sound of feral animals, screaming into the night.
The journal is available from both of the links below.
