"My assignment is what every writer's assignment is: to tell the truth of his own time." - Leslie Fiedler
Assignment's fourth issue, Adulthood, is now available online, featuring new fiction from Rachel B. Glaser, Gemma Sieff, and Vauhini Vara, plus an interview with Rachel B. Glaser, as well as a story by Eddie Dzialo, the winner of the 2018 Assignment MFA Student Writing Contest.
As is typical with every printed edition of the magazine, each of these contributors included a writing exercise with his/her piece. If you'd like to receive a hard copy, please contact us via email.
