"EGO IS DEFINITELY THE WORST, MOST DIRTY WORD EVER. And that's why we've made a print issue of The Lifted Brow about it, and that's why we want to celebrate its awfulness."
"Within the contents of this 23rd issue of the print edition of The Lifted Brow you will find very excellent pieces of writing and visual art that seek to probe and engross issues concerning the self, identity, ego, arrogance, and related matters, all without the author becoming a one person human centipede — someone trying desperately to say something but being blocked by their own anus. Also, as a direct response to the ubiquity of the ego in writing and the world, all contributors were banned from using subjective, objective and possessive first-person pronouns, both singular and plural — a job that was difficult for them as well as for the editorial crew, but a job that has been done."
