Call closes April 30, 2017.

The next call for submissions is for issue 41.1 "Family Secrets."

All families have secrets. Rooted in guilt and shame, and passed on through the generations, these secrets can have unexpected reverberations in the present. We're seeking your best poetry, fiction, CNF, and visual art that explores and exposes the dark and tangled secrets that haunt and shape family narratives.
