"My assignment is what every writer's assignment is: to tell the truth of his own time." - Leslie Fiedler
Issue #2, 2016: Warzone
Assignment's second installment, The Warzone Issue, is now available. It features new fiction from Justin Taylor and Greg Jackson, an interview with Taylor, and essays by Jennifer Percy, and Nadia Owusu, the winner of the 2016 Assignment MFA Student Writing Contest. See them here.
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 reserve a copy of the hard copy, please reach out to the Editors, or email the magazine here.
