who we is

drr is an online and print journal that publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry and ideas. We are interested in the margins, in the shifting centres and the new spaces that exist in what we’ve come to call the alternative. We are curious about how we can all imagine and create this world, build this world, shape this small corner of the Internet into a place we can claim. We want to imagine this world here, in the right now, in the ongoing, in this perpetual machine we call enlightenment, to continuously seek to collaborate with writers, artists, musicians, etc., and break free from these hefty editorials and simply create and jam together. We are here again for the first time.  We welcome you to join us in this world-making.
