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.
