"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

If you’re inspired to produce evocative, first-person, social-justice oriented writing—sexual, racial, economic, border-related, or other—then we’d love the opportunity to read your work. All prose submissions should be under 750 words.”

Submit no more than one piece of prose and no more than three poems or three pieces of visual art to . therevolutionrelaunch.com
