A special designation for the writing that is ... personal. Learned. About growing up or being you and how you got from point A to point B in life. Or how someone influenced that journey. Or about a journey. We want 500 - 2500 words but lean toward brevity as the soul of wit. Longer pieces will be accepted (2,500 wds) but yall gotta murder lot of darlings to get into the Dead Mule. If you're confused as to whether you're sending us a memoir or some creative non-fiction, worry not, we'll figure you out.
