Support Snarl: GoFundMe Campaign

Dear readers, please consider donating to the 2022 Snarl fundraiser. We are still a young journal and rising paper costs have only further complicated our future. We are dedicated to paying our contributors and to providing a home to great literature and artwork by marginalized creators. In order to continue doing so, we need your support. Donations of $25 or more will come with a free copy of Issue #3! Further donor perks are listed on our fundraiser page.

Belated Editor’s Note for Issue #3

The editors of Snarl take seriously the right to bodily autonomy that all people with uteruses deserve. Without establishing an explicit theme for our third issue, we found many of the works in this issue to be in conversation with the fraught state of parenting, pregnancy, and abortion in the US. This note means to both reinforce our commitment to reproductive freedom and provide a few points of action for our readers.

“Slowness” (excerpted), A Short Story by Amrita De from Issue 2

The summer with Avyan had a before and after: before his widowed father came to visit and—afterward. I was an out-of-work graduate student in the sixth year of my doctoral program in Political Science, slicing my life thin and watching the end of a relationship slowly burn out, like a curtain winded by an errant candle.
