Publisher’s description: The mission of Memoir Magazine is to be a witness to both factual and emotional truths that resonate with the human heart by supporting writers and artists in sharing their stories—whether personal, social, or political– through publication, education, and advocacy.

Our goal is to cultivate our collective and individual capacity to recognize truth, while creating greater diversity and empathy, by flooding the world with stories that need to be told.

Because pictures tell stories, Memoir Magazine presents visual artwork, (including photography, illustrations, and word art) and sound projects (audible projects, podcasts, spoken word), as well as short form memoir and creative nonfiction essays, interviews, and book reviews.

We aim to be inclusive. We believe that everybody’s story matters—indeed, has to matter. For if we are to survive as a species, we must learn each other's stories in order to vanquish ignorance and to collectively evolve beyond the base lower vibration (the mass illusion of separateness) that has steered us for thousands of years. Therefore, all true (and creatively true) stories are welcome regardless of the subject matter, educational level or achievement, race, religion, sexual orientation gender identity, or gender expression, of the author.
