The theme for this year's anthology is rites of passage, any kind of passage through life, time or space. Creative nonfiction on this topic includes memoir and personal essays. Our preference is for emotional complexity. Submit one essay (1,000 to 5,000 words) in a Word doc, docx, RTF or ODT, which includes title in the file name (but NOT the author's name). Do not include author name in the file, as readings are blind. Work should not have been previously published, either online or in print.
