June’s theme is inspired by a quote from Cheryl Strayed:
“The invisible, unwritten last line of every essay should be “and nothing was ever the same again.” By which I mean the reader should feel the ground shift, if even only a bit, when he or she comes to the end of the essay.”
All the moments we use to understand and define ourselves have one thing in common. Afterward, nothing was ever the same. We’re all comprised of hundreds of these moments, big and small. Which one do you want to share?
Discover a nut allergy the hard way? Overhear an important conversation? Take a class that changed your brain forever? Create unexpected but life-long friendships in after-school detention? (Fine, that last one was The Breakfast Club.)
Join us as we unpack stories of every size and flavor.
