Editorial Staff

Travelers, dreamers, visionaries, readers, writers, romantics, ambitious, curious, determined, cheerful, companions, sometimes parents, but most of all friends. As extroverted as they have to be, selfish when they need to be, especially about the passion that makes their heart race: writing. People not too pretentious, people able to bare their souls with one unique, large, common objective: sharing a moment, a place, a memory, an emotion. Life is a sequence of beats associated with a sensation and they don’t want to let even one escape. So that’s why they’re here, all together, to make their voices one single story.
