Now Here This presents...
From the Editors:
Apologies for the late response! We’ve been really busy this semester and haven't had the time to get back to you. Specifically, we’ve been busy making stories about what it means to apologize. This issue is about repair and healing, but also absent apologies, the refusal to forgive, and what happens when saying sorry isn’t enough.
This spring, we at Now Here This would like to apologize. We don’t call our moms enough. We should’ve been more emotionally available. We stole a water bottle from the lost and found and don’t know whose it is.
Of course, you’ll find that some of these stories have almost nothing to do with apologies—we just liked them.
