If you are a literary agent with potential publishing outlets for an inaugural compilation of personal essays, please contact me.
My work has a confessional quality; things I wasn’t supposed to say get said out loud in this mosaic memoir collection. Intermingled among traditional essay forms are experimental layouts, including several fragmented pieces, a braided piece entwining two different stories set in two different time frames, an alphabetical list, and even a personal letter. There are eleven pieces in all and several relevant photos scattered throughout. The use of historic present tense verbs alongside past tenses seamlessly weaves the reader through the span of years. Included are blurbs from widely published authors, as seen below. I wrote these pieces to sort out the darkness I’d been running from. I collected them into a single work and want to publish it because my voice will give others courage to come out of their own hiding.
