Sprout #16 now available (the FRIENDSHIP issue)

We walk together.

Sprout: Friendship (our sixteenth issue) frees friendship of labels and limitations, revealing a living kind of kinship that's possible now--just as you are. When our definition changes, we are free to celebrate connection of all kinds, found how and where we need it most--right in the middle of our messy-beautiful everyday lives.

Friendship no longer requires a prettied-up, polished, censored version of yourself (did it ever?). Meaningful connection invites the real and true you to come out of hiding, to drop pretense, to lower your defenses enough to see the real and true person looking back at you.

Join me (Amanda Fall) and eighteen guests in Sprout's latest colorful issue. In these sixty pages of art, poetry, essays, and much more, we explore kinship of all shapes and sizes. Brave, true, unafraid connection celebrates you + me + we--and holds space for all three.

Sprout online magazine: issue sixteen (seeds of friendship) is now available!
