Join three amazing writers for a celebration of their novellas (Mason Jar Press, 2019): The Couples by Nicole Callihan, Manhunt by Jaime Fountaine, and All Friends are Necessary by Tomas Moniz. Chosen during an open submission period out of hundreds of submissions, these thematically linked pieces speak to one another while containing a strength and style all their own.
Tomas Moniz’s ALL FRIENDS ARE NECESSARY follows a young man in San Francisco as he navigates love, addiction, and the struggles of early adulthood on his way to maturity and independence.
In Jaime Fountaine’s MANHUNT, a girl spends the summer she’s thirteen negotiating a place for herself in her body, her neighborhood, her family, and the world.
THE COUPLES, by Nicole Callihan, finds the protagonist at a crossroads in her marriage and her family life, remembering and reexperiencing her first relationship and all the damage her youth imparted upon her.
