Our Pigeon Pages flock is constantly building a nest of stories we love. Read these to get a feel for our favorite writerly birdsongs:
- "P. Lawson" by Kiley Reid - We love the way this piece says so much by saying so little, and the movement through time in the story.
- "How to Be Chinese" by Celeste Ng - This piece takes the specific and makes it universal, and we love how authoritative the voice is.
- "Read This Very Short Story About What It's like to Be an Aging Werewolf" by Lincoln Michel - We love the way this illustrates how a story doesn't have to be "true" (werewolves aren't real... right?) to ring true for a reader. And that a story doesn't have to be long in length to be remembered for a long time.
The best part? These pieces all follow our submissions guidelines.
Think your story could fly with us? Send it to us via Submittable starting November 1st and we'll peck at it!
