Editorial Focus

The Head & the Hand’s mission is to publish writing that has the power to spark change and entertain, and the socially conscious Shockwire Chapbook Series is our gambit to raise the storytelling stakes.

Shockwire stories are snapshots of a time and place where expressions of curiosity, empathy, and acceptance shine a light on their absence in everyday life. Through our spring and fall 2018 Shockwire series, we have published stories of homelessness, immigration, intersectionality, and civil rights history.

Tips From the Editor

We are especially eager to read thought-provoking CNF and longform essays that fall within our Shockwire Chapbook Series guidelines.
