Meet Me at the Intersection is an online young adult publication in which fantasy collides with reality. We seek short stories centered around loss and recovery, challenge and growth, trauma and healing, shame and change.
Here’s the twist.
Our authors tell the same story twice. Once in non-fiction as themselves. And once as a fictional alter-ego in an imaginary world. Visual artists help bring these stories to life.
Meet Me at the Intersection came about out of a desire to explore how creativity can be used to process and share our most difficult stories. Life rarely offers resolutions in a tidy box. How do we create our own imperfect endings? How do we integrate the most jagged pieces of ourselves into the narrative whole?
Sometimes it helps to tap into our inner warrior—be she a one-eyed princess, a rouge space captain, or a cyborg fox—to create a roadmap of our battles and bruises.
Telling a tale as it happened is powerful. Telling a tale translated into fiction is transformative.
We are based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, but our editors, writers, web-developers, and artists come from all over the world.
Meet us at the intersection. Don’t forget your flashlight, sword, map, and pencil.
