Welcome to Issue 17 of Zooscape!
We are the stories we tell. As we tell them, they change who we are and who we become. The stories we choose to hold on to — or can’t seem to let go of — shape ourselves and our lives. We need to make room in our stories for other ways of being, for other kinds of beings. For hope. For the possibility of change. For growth.
This is why Zooscape continues to exist and provide the world with stories, even in these weird and uncertain times. We will continue keeping the lore.
