Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
I hope you’ll find here what I’ve been wanting to read: well-told true stories of how different people have figured it out as they’re going along. I think every age has the potential to be an awkward age, and as my teeth migrate steadily back to where they were pre-braces, I’m revisiting those feelings of let’s pretend again. Let’s we pretend we know how to dance. Let’s pretend we know how to kiss. Let’s pretend we know how to dress for work. Let’s pretend we know how to date after many years. Let’s pretend this new career move isn’t scary and thrilling as all get-out. Let’s pretend we know how to deal with our father’s dementia. Let’s pretend we know how to say a final goodbye to our mother. Thanks for pretending with us.

Submissions Policy
Like every other editor, I'm interested in work that addresses our mission—in our case, essays that explore the awkward ages of adulthood. I'm especially interested in work from writers from traditionally marginalized backgrounds, although I don't care if the essay itself addresses that maginalization.
