Theme X: Family, Introduction

With Thanksgiving approaching, writing pieces on the strangeness yet familiarity of family relationships seemed only fitting. Whether you’re anticipating your classic drunk uncle and his off-beat humor, your grandma who’s offended that you’re vegan now and can’t eat her creamed spinach, or your sister you’ll immediately pick back up a conversation you left three months ago, all is fair game with family. Whether those bonds through the mama drama and the sibling rivalries end up good or bad, conflict creates story — and our writers this week explore their own views of family.

Happy Reading!
