about the issue
Sonder brings writers together to generate admiration for the communities around us.
In this tenth issue, we encourage others to write about (or with) the idea that your life is unique to you, just like someone else’s is special to them. When we pause to admire the experiences behind the veil of our friends and lovers, neighbors, and strangers, then, and only then, can we embrace the full fabric of secret moments that shape life itself.

“Everyone is their own protagonist. Poetry is the transitory permeability between writing to understand yourself and to understand everyone else. Seek connections between yourself and your strangers. Write about them.”
