Bakwa 08: PAIN

How do we articulate pain? It’s easy to think of physical pain, whereas emotional, mental and psychological pain are usually overlooked. Can we ignore pain? Where does it come from? Heartbreak, menstrual pain— is there a singular way pain feels? Does it make us stronger, or leave us irreparably broken?

We explore pain in different forms with an exciting mix of memoir, fiction and poetry. Contributors include: Isabella Morris, Howard M-B Maximus, Ucheoma Onwutuebe, Margot Block, Ani Kayode Somtochukwu, Dane Cobain, Stanley Princewill McDaniels, Agogho Franklin and more.
