Issue Three of Wonderground explores the ways in which lives are shaped by both desire and line. We’re exploring ideas of ecosexuality and Derek Jarman’s garden, mapping flight paths, meandering along desire lines, tracing the story of Nikolai Vavilov, using desire as a design tool, and holding tight to the rope stretched across the deep.

Issue Two of Wonderground explores notions of loss and discovery. Finding the future in the garden, losing plants and their stories, uncovering new ways of seeing the world, and becoming intimate with disappearance. The publication features essays, memoir, poetry and fiction from an eclectic collection of writers, thinkers, gardeners and artists. Wonderground Issue Two is hopeful, heartfelt, provocative and delightful – a salve for our times.

Featuring a range of voices, views and ideas, the inaugural issue of Wonderground focuses on questions of transformation. Change is both constant and challenging, scary and stimulating and it feels fitting to start a new print journal, and a new year, exploring this topic.
