Author Dorothy Allison writes in her introduction, “The most dangerous stories are the true ones, the ones we hesitate to tell, the adventures laden with fear or shame or the relentless pull of regret.” Edited by Lee Gutkind and Beth Ann Fennelly, the anthology includes work by Dr. Rachael Peckham, a 2009 graduate of the program, and Sarah Einstein, currently in her third year of the Ph.D. in Nonfiction.

Peckham is the author of Muck Fire (Spring Garden Press) and the recipient of the 2010 Robert Watson Poetry Award. She currently teaches creative nonfiction at Marshall University in Huntington, WV. Einstein’s work has appeared in journals such as Ninth Letter, PANK, and Fringe, and has been awarded a Pushcart Prize. She is also the Managing Editor of Brevity.
