The unspeakable...

Stories share the characteristics of scene and details, of plot and suspense, of characters, whether they’re factual; loosely based on true events, or invented. Stories can be shaped into poems, short stories, novels, personal essays, memoirs, hybrids, and crossovers . . . Stories have the power to say the unspeakable.
