What is This?

“This is difficult, this is so hard.
This is fantastic.
Now I’ve got nothing.
We are the ones suffering the most from art.”
Ushio Shinohara

THIS. is the brainchild of two friends—a mutual endeavor to deliver insatiate readers garden-fresh, imaginative works by the best of today’s emerging writers. Our collective is based loosely upon an idea, one shared by the likes of Cesar A. Cruz, David Foster Wallace, Banksy and Finley Peter Dunne, that art should comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. We feature provocative and experimental works of literary merit, accentuated by the arresting art and photography of our resident and guest artists.
