The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Sweet Tree Review - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
Note: remove identifying information from manuscript for anonymous judging.

A sweet tree does not have a single definition. A sweet tree is everything you need it to be and nothing you expect it to be.

A sweet tree is the inceptive – your earliest memory, the stain of blackberry juice, the cat you lost in fourth grade, your latest road trip postcard, the B minus on your thesis, the old lady that laughed at you kissing your boyfriend, the bus you waited for in the rain when you misread the schedule.

A sweet tree is the aftermath – the fireweed, the clink of soapy glasses after a funeral, the lights without the sirens, the 3:34 am phone call, the bustle of the hospital after the monitor stops, the thrum of helicopter blades over rubble, the exhale of a rescue dog.

Confront us. Endear us. Scare us. Sadden us. Show us things we don’t understand; things we didn’t know we wanted to understand.
