Feminist Fridays: "The Language We Use For Love" by Brynne Rebele-Henry

Think of the limits of language, of all the words that have yet to be invented, the emotions not classified or felt clearly enough to have a place in a dictionary, or, emotions that have not yet been translated from one language to another (take, for example, the Japanese word, Koi No Yokan, which describes the sensation upon meeting another person who you realize you will inevitably fall in love with. Or, the Norwegian word, Forelsket, which describes the sensation before falling in love, or the sensation directly at the time that you first fall in love).

Reminder: Adroit Journal's 2016 Mentorship Program Open for Applications!

A common idea about writing is that it is a solitary art, that the writer exists in a space alone and writes. Here at Adroit, we'd like to shatter that misconception. We believe a strong artistic community is vital to the growth of writing, and so we nurture one here: The Adroit Journal's Annual Summer Mentorship Program.
