While some contributors channelled their rage into fictional revenge stories, others meditated on their relationships with rage as a political tool. Some also wrote about pain and acts of destruction as somatic articulations of rage, while our own Georjia looked at the online rage directed at nepo babies.
We want readers to reflect on their own relationship with rage, how it is expressed in people and represented on screen, written about in books and intellectualised elsewhere, and very importantly, who has permission to express it in the first place.
For what it’s worth, here’s permission to do so with us.
Cringe's 5th issue contains essays, photography, poetry and artwork exploring the difficulties – and occasionally pleasures – of expressing rage.
