The Other Side by Lacy M. Johnson

Posted 6.17.14

Lacy M. Johnson reads an excerpt from her memoir The Other Side, forthcoming in July from Tin House Books.

I crash through the screen door, arms flailing like two loose propellers, stumbling like a woman on fire: hair and clothes ablaze. Or I do not stumble. I make no noise at all as I open the door with one hand, holding a two-by-four above my head with the other. My feet and legs carry me forward, the rest of my body still, like a statue. Like a ninja. A cartoon.

engaging as many people as possible in the life-changing experience of

Tips From the Editor: 

We’re taking both creative nonfiction and fiction. No unsolicited
poetry is being accepted at this time. Max word count is 5000, though
1500 to 3000 is the sweet spot. Simultaneous submissions are accepted.
No previously published work, please. Only one submission at a time,
please.

If you have never read a print version of this magazine, it’s strongly suggested you do.

Burner is that girl. She's witty, pretty, and doesn't dumb
herself down. By day, she's a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances
gogo. Inspired by fellow revolutionaries from John Lennon to Virginia
Woolf, she's a muse and amusing, compelling and never complacent. The
Burner girl gets hot and bothered by the Marquis de Lafayette, aspires
to redefine the zeitgeist like Nietzsche, and provokes thought like
Margaret Atwood.

Super Arrow is a biannual online journal for experiments in writing and art. Our publication is designed for community and creative risk. The name of the journal is a partial english-to-english homophonic transliteration of "supererogatory," or, beyond what is required. We mean this, whatever that means to you.

We look for writing that is surprisingly exceptional, not necessarily the in your face brilliance, but the kind of writing that surprises you with story and a clear focus and voice. We love new writers, adore established writers, and embrace the I've-Never-Done-This-Before writers. If you have a story, a poem, an essay, or something that you haven't quite classified yet, but you think it could stand up to being read, then please submit it. Our staff loves to read!

Tips From the Editor: 

Please do include your name, number, and e-mail; please do submit YOUR OWN ORIGINAL UNPUBLISHED WORK; please do keep your cover letter short and sweet. Please don't submit the same piece multiple times; please don't forget if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
