So many stories we’ve read since we started. A person might think they’d begin to seem all the same, but they don’t. Without fail, the stories we read each month move, surprise, and change us.
We are grateful to the writers for this gift, and to you, dear readers, for completing the circle, for opening yourself to their generous offerings.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES.
The annual Family Matters contest is open to submissions from November 1 to January 2.
We are looking for stories about families of all configurations. It’s fine to draw heavily on real-life experiences, but the work must read like fiction and all stories accepted for publication will be presented as fiction.
Sticking too tightly to “fact” can limit the larger truth that fiction is able to reveal. Give your story the leeway it needs in order to find its own life. And, if your story is closely related to your actual experience, it is wise to change details that would allow the real-life people to say, Hey, that’s me!
Most entries run from 500 to 5,000 words but any lengths up to 12,000 are welcome.
