mission statement

Indigo, to us, means softness – despite everything. It's coming home after a long day to a cup of tea that is warm as touch; reading a poem on the train as the rain grieves against the glass, a distant sadness that doesn't have to be yours; or an evening spent with loved ones, their hands falling against your shoulders like cardigans, guarding against tomorrow. It's a promise that this tenderness is not a moment but a place we return to.

We believe in the power of the written word, that it has multiple forms which can channel comfort to anyone needing it. We trust in the sharing and promotion of literature, and that any ordinary pen can be truly musical.  We’ve published four issues of our literary magazine, and have a blog where we interview writers. What are you waiting for? Show us your hauntings, your joys. Or – read work we have featured. We hope that you love it as much as we do.
