This inaugural issue of the SFWP Annual includes twelve fiction and creative nonfiction stories from the first issues of the SFWP Quarterly, formerly known as the SFWP Journal. Read heartbreaking fiction about finding companionship as the sun literally burns itself out, learn about the trauma young gay men in Iran often endure, hide from witches in Salem in the 1600s, and even make your way through a modern choose-your-own-adventure story. Our creative nonfiction pieces range from life in a Mexican psychiatric ward to the social fallout of an abortion. These stories have a staying power that will keep readers enthralled for days. The featured authors of creative nonfiction include Samantha Edmonds, Randon Billings Noble, N. R. Robinson, Morgan Smith, and Kayleigh Wanzer. For fiction, our featured authors are Kelli Jo Ford, Sadie Hoagland, Kerri Pierce, Emily Rems, June Sylvester Saraceno, Atossa Shafaie, and Nancy Smith.


"Readers can choose their own adventure through this diverse selection of literature . . . This anthology contains a dozen different voices, each adding something new to the conversation that makes up its pages, each showcasing their love of words and their compulsion to keep writing." —Liesel Hamilton, phoebejournal
