Love Letters

A flash folio edited by Yi Wei

The Love Letters folio, edited by Yi Wei, brings together twelve pieces of flash that capture several different perspectives, angles, and actions on loving in the world. “Rather than thinking about each of the stories in this folio as purely love stories, I ask you to consider how they use love to negotiate more difficult considerations about living in the world,” writes Yi Wei. Read her editor’s note for a guide to these stories.

Artwork by Ali El-Chaer accompanies each piece in the folio.
