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. Edited by Rachel Thompson, and assistant edited by Arielle Spence and Alissa McArthur.

Call closes July 31, 2017.
