As If is bursting with brilliant writing and art from talented young people.
In fiction, you’ll find Pilates, a python and a water nymph trapped into working for the Greek gods. Nonfiction covers Grey’s Anatomy, literary theory, and theories of play. Poetry zooms in the small things like trips to Woolies (before they were a health hazard), mangos and the early stages of intimacy. And visual art and comics feature horse girls, online dating and dogs who really want to make humans happy.
All this is wrapped up in a gorgeous cover by Jasmine Pickup, with animated illustrations by Jisu Im.
