Tell your tale twice. Once as you. And once as a hero in a fantastical world.
Intersection Stories is an upcoming publication in which fantasy collides with reality. We are currently seeking short stories centering around loss and recovery, challenge and learning, shame and change. Here’s the twist.
We’d like you to tell the same story twice. Once as yourself, and once as an entirely fictional alter-ego in an imaginary world. We are also seeking visual artists (photographers, graphic artists, illustrators) to bring these stories to life.
Sound like you? Head on over to our submissions page for more info.
Intersection Stories came about out of a desire to explore how we process our own difficult stories. Life rarely offer resolutions in a tidy box. How then do we create our own imperfect happy endings? How do we integrate the most jagged pieces of ourselves into the narrative whole?
A guiding principal of Intersections is we need not hold our stories alone: shame festers in the dark and shimmers in the light. And sometimes it helps to tap into our inner warrior- be she a princess, a space captain, or bloodied fox army commander- to do so.
The collaborative element also aims to bring together a wide array of artists with diverse backgrounds and align us on a common goal: create an adventurous roadmap of our battles and bruises.
