Upcoming Print Issues
Curious about other people’s loves, losses, or even grocery lists? Into Humans of New York, we’re not really strangers, or Stories from a stranger?
For Issue 10, Sonder, we invite you to share glimpses of others’ lives — glimpses reminding us that everyone is the main character of their own story — and reminding us how important it is to recognize these hidden moments.
In the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, the word “sonder” means acknowledging that other people are “living a life as vivid and complex as your own.” Poems, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, hybrid forms, and visual art that explore these themes are all welcome.
Early Bird Submissions (free): June 1, 2022 – July 31, 2022
