Slata Mechouia

Introduction: I lived in Tunisia until I was fourteen, and as a Tunisian some of the smells I love the most are those of Jasmine flower, tasty Tunisian food and the sea. Oh, how happy the smell of grilled peppers would make when I’d come home from school. I still remember how our dearest nanny,... Continue Reading →

Dear No One

Dear No One, How have you been? It’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other. Around this time of year, I’d usually be writing a letter to my younger self to reflect on my actions and achievements. However, as the past few months have provided me with more than enough time for introspection,... Continue Reading →


Author: Isabella van Berkel When her hands worked, idly threading and casting and stitching, the sun shone down on them. A soft yellow.  When she would cook, spices and herbs would color my favorite curry. A brownish yellow.  When my first birthday came around, she made me my birthday cake, the icing on it a...

Life Seen in Yellow

Author: Laura Popa A lot of my memories are yellow. Just as almost every kid on this planet I used a yellow pencil to fill the left corner of a blank paper. Yellow looked like a sun on a silly drawing. My dad was driving to the sea passing by sunflower fields in the summer.... Continue Reading →

It’s either experiencing the comfort... Continue Reading →

On the Theme of Yellow

Author: Hugh Raggett A writer sat in a quiet corner, pencil twirling between their fingers. Their eyes mechanically read and re-read a short list of points scribbled across a sheet ripped from one of their many notebooks. Above the list was the title, Yellow. The points beneath read,  -yellow objects: taxi (not in NL), yellow... Continue Reading →

An Introduction to Malta

At the end of September, I decided to visit a friend of mine who studies in Malta. This two week visit turned into an impromptu study abroad, as I’ve decided to stay until February 2021. The reason that I decided to stay is because the country is beautiful, the weather is amazing, and I live... Continue Reading →

The Woods Have Eyes

The woods by my childhood home are host to something rotten.  When I was younger and still incredibly scared of the dark, I would take the long way home from football practice during autumn and winter - across the train tracks, and past the wheat fields - because the sun would set at 5 pm...
