Strangers in a Strange Land

by | Sep 22, 2015 | Creative Nonfiction, Race, Culture & Gender

This week we bring you “Strangers in a Strange Land,” an all creative nonfiction package of essays and flash prose that revolve around culture, travel, The Other, and personal growth. So grab your passport and let our writers take you on a trip from Haiti (“Eldet”) to southwest Africa (“Makuwa”) to Southeast Asia (“Teaching Kindergarten in Thailand…”) to France (“How to Digress…” and “Baggage”), and finally to New York City, the Oklahoma countryside and places we traverse to find our narrative (“The Search for a Story”).
