    Creative Nonfiction About Love for The Chaos Spring Issue

    • Deadline info Deadline: March 31, 2017
    • Genre Nonfiction
    • Type Magazine

    Woody Allen said, "To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness." We're seeking short, personal essays, 250-5000 words, about love for the The Chaos spring issue. Tragedy or comedy, originality will win us over. www.thechaos.life
