Writing Contest 

The Family Narrative Project invites entries to our 2018 essay contest on the theme of family. At FNP, we know that family means many things to many different people. Feel free to define family broadly. We also know that family relationships can be complicated and wonderful and frustrating and supportive and destructive and confusing and breathtakingly loving. We know, in other words, that they have the power both to harm and to heal. We are open to essays that reflect the full range of family life.
