Call for Submissions: Secrets‏

Please help us disseminate this call for submissions.
In The Fray Magazine | Call for Submissions | July 2013: Secrets

The classified intelligence leaks by former U.S. government contractor Edward Snowden threw a light on the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs. In response, the Obama administration has argued its methods have been legal, transparent, and successful in foiling dozens of terrorist plots.

To what extent does it undermine the credibility of government institutions? How does secrecy, even if well-intentioned, affect human relationships? Does full transparency help or hurt us?

In The Fray wants to know your secrets. This may be a photo essay on hidden places travelers could enjoy in your city or a narrative exploration of an underground community. You might tell us about a time you kept a relationship under wraps or hid a medical diagnosis. We also want to hear humorous accounts of keeping and learning secrets.

Please review our submissions guidelines and send a one-paragraph pitch or draft to the appropriate section editor NO LATER THAN JULY 31, 2013. Include three samples of your previous work (links are preferred).

We are open to submissions on any other topics that relate to the magazine’s themes: promoting global understanding and encouraging empathy.

We look forward to hearing from you.
