We feature personal essays about one's political life or political essays about one's personal life. We're looking, in particular, for essays that detail the ways that policy or the threat of policy affect an individual in our current climate. Diversity is very important to us as a means of bringing disparate experiences together under one roof with the belief that there are more things that unite us as humans than there are that seperate us.
Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but please let us know if your piece has been accepted elsewhere.
A note on re-prints: We will accept reprints of personal essays that have appeared only in print journals in order to give them a new life on the Internet.
