I’m lucky to share internet white space with some humblingly-awesome writers in this month’s issue of Word Riot, where I’ve found a home for a personal essay of mine (almost exactly) two years in the making.
It’s called Risk, and full disclosure — it’s pretty graphic. It’s also my first published piece of creative nonfiction and I’m as proud of it as I am embarrassed by it. It’s a strange feeling.
Give it a look if you like. And while you’re there, be sure to check out all the other awesome work featured this month.
I haven’t gotten through the whole magazine yet, but I’m serious when I say there’s some fantastic writing here. Some of my favorites so far:
Dual(ing) Rhetorics: Laundry Tub Love by Michelle C. Wright
Three Minutes by Tricia Leaf
Freckles by Betsy Jemas
When I Want You by Lisa Locascio
Three Poems by Benjamin DeVos
As always, thanks for reading.
