the latest issue of Oh Comely is inspired by dreams with a cover that perfectly distils various of the features inside its pages. These include a piece by performer Soma Ghosh who wants readers to shed their feminist guilt and embrace sexuality, as she investigates whether porn can ever, really, be feminist. Alex Merry conjures up surreal, magical creatures from her kitchen table. Elsewhere, Charly Cox writes a poem for the changing seasons and Mahalia sings some sassy-sweet soul.

the latest issue of Oh Comely gets nostalgic over summers past with a collection of features that welcome sentimentality, truancy, and taking things slow. There’s an excellent essay by Thea Hawlin who calls on science to better understand why time is so slippery in the mind; four writers explore cities where time’s effects is seen on its surface; there are interviews with a mental health campaigner and hat makers; and some beautiful paintings of female figures by Prudence Flint.

the midsummer issue of Oh Comely looks squarely at identity and focuses its attention on self representation as a way to portray that, asking five artists to create self portraits which touch on religion, society and simply playing dress up. elsewhere, the issue explores ideas about gender and stereotype through clothing; writers open up about their make-up routines; novels that were written in cafes; and a conversation with 13 Reasons Why actress Alisha Boe on the subjects of sexual assault and victim blaming.
