You know those personal parenting essays you read in The New York Times? We don’t want those. We want your short, short parenting stories—CNF or fiction—that incorporate the weird, the surreal, or the speculative into the parenting narrative in some way. We want ghosts and robots and Children of the Corn. We want angry shouts into the void. We want deep love that withstands tidal waves. We want small, everyday moments that turn inside out. We want to be disturbed, to laugh, to whimper, to gasp at the audacity of a parent telling us THAT. Are you not a parent, but you are or were put into a parent-like role and something unexpected and/or creepy and/or mystical happened? We want to read your story, too. We want exceptional writing. We want purposeful prose. We want you and your words!
