Welcome back to VERSO /’s 5th season “mass” on Sunday, April 14th, guest edited by Karen Kao and featuring works by poet Megin Jiménez, astronomer Daniel Michalik, change agent Kirk Wornum, novelist Caoilinn Hughes, and dancer Lily Kiara.

We can’t wait to see you. Read on for details.


We live in a world of formulae. Birth rates, earning power, life expectancy. The power load that the electricity network must sustain long enough for you to read this message. And mass: a formula for quantifying inertia.

VERSO / is Amsterdam’s live lit & arts magazine, brought to you by Mezrab and the makers of Versal. Our “mass” season continues on Sunday, April 14th with FORMULAE guest edited by writer and novelist Karen Kao.
