Issue 2: Fear

Issue 2: Fear

November 17, 2021

We didn't know what to expect when we asked for submissions for Issue 2. “Fear” as a concept, we discovered, was diverse and nuanced and vast. The scope of fears we received ranged from deeply personal to outright humorous, and while no one sent us a ghost story, we left the selection process haunted all the same.

The conversation that grew out of these three pieces felt destined to come together. One piece had us wincing at the fear of being vulnerable, another at the fear of change, and yet one more at the fear of not changing soon enough. Independently, any one of these writers could reshape our understanding of what it means to truly be afraid, but together they dive into the complexities of being a woman, a mother, a partner, and alone all at once. 

That’s our 3cents. Enjoy.

Issue 1: Beginnings

Issue 1: Beginnings

July 21, 2021

Our first issue of 3cents Magazine is a reminder of what a beautiful, messy, complicated, and dangerous process starting something new can be. We didn’t know what to expect when we reached out to our first trio of authors, but their work took three threads out of the tangled ball of twine that is “beginnings” and braided together an extraordinary conversation. 

Independently, any of these excellent reads have something to say on starting something new: beginnings are complicated, beginnings are traumatic, beginnings often sneak up when we least expect them. Together, though, these works remind us that no matter how hard we try, we never know what we’re truly beginning to do. 

That’s our 3cents. Enjoy.
