Deadline: April 30th.
Proximity is seeking your essays and other forms of true storytelling that relate to its third issue’s theme: STUFF. We’re interested in “stuff” in all its forms: The stuff we own, the stuff we consume, the stuff we give away, the stuff we can’t bear to part with, the stuff we live without. All of this stuff has a story: Where it comes from, the emotional response it evokes, the way it connects us to our past.
These are the stories we hope you’ll tease from your own life. Whether it’s a story of origin, an attempt to live with less (or more!), or the people, places, history, or other meaning that an everyday object conjures, we want to hear your story of STUFF.
