“We tell ourselves stories in order to live,” Joan Didion
We are excited to announce our new FICTION FRIDAYS!
We know stories can tell deep truths, and that those truths come in many forms. As much as we love personal essays and other creative nonfiction, sometimes we yearn for the freedom that fiction can give.
We want to read your stories, however you write them.
“Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth,” Albert Camus
The first and third of every month, we will publish a piece of short fiction (max 6000 words, but we’d prefer 3-4000).
This is a new angle for us, so we’re starting slow, but we hope that you will submit your short stories and other short fiction for consideration. Anything goes – contemporary to historical to mystery to realism to fantasy to romance. Serious to humorous; heartfelt to wry.
Tell us your stories, we can’t wait to read them!
