We started Chickpea as a way to include all of our readers and colleagues in a way that put them on a similar level, despite their individual experience or traditional skill level. We think it’s not only important to showcase voices that aren’t normally heard, but way more fun to get perspectives of all types. As well, these varying stories and mix of people helps inform each issue’s direction and theme, making each one unique and fresh.
