Since Working Draft launched in 2020, we’ve been reminded of how easily humbled we are by nature. Nature has the power to overturn our lives and call us back to ourselves.
That’s why we chose the theme of “nature” for Working Draft’s fourth issue — we wanted to explore the ebb and flow of our relationships with the world around us.
In this year’s articles, we venture into the wilderness of our environments and ourselves. We try to understand our place in the world and our role in preserving it for years to come.
Join us as we unearth answers to the questions of who we are, where we come from, and where we are heading.
Thank you for reading.
