Sacral Dimple in Memoir Journal

Memoir Journal Issue 14You can now read my short nonfiction piece, “Sacral Dimple,” in Issue 14 of Memoir. Although I’m sad that this is Memoir’s final issue before going on hiatus, I’m very excited and proud to have showcased my work in such a beautiful publication, and to have been included in its long line of fine writers and interviewees, who have included names like William T. Vollmann, Lia Purpura, Cheryl Strayed, amongst others. My piece, “Sacral Dimple,” is very dear to my heart, touching on my experience with pregnancy, miscarriage, loss and hope–I’d like to share it with as many people, women in particular, as possible. I’m uncertain how long you’ll be able to order issues via the Memoir website, but I would be happy to email you a copy of the text if you’re interested. Feel free to query me.

The following is the farewell message from Memoir’s Editor in Chief, Claudia Sternbach. We’ll miss you, Memoir!

Working on this issue has been bittersweet. Not simply because we were unable to accept every piece worthy of sharing with readers, but because, for now anyway, we are saying goodbye. Despite the fact that Memoir has continued to grow, that we gain more readers each month and attract scintillating submissions from well known writers as well as new and emerging writers, we will be turning out the lights and locking the office door. Our primary source of funding has ended. But we are forever indebted to them for their generosity over these past few years. Not only were we able to publish 14 issues of Memoir, but we were able to offer workshops and publication through our (In)Visible Memoir project. And who knows, miracles do happen. Sometime in the future a Phoenix may rise from these ashes. Looking back at earlier issues of Memoir I am so proud of what we accomplished and what our contributors also accomplished.

We say farewell for now. I am forever grateful to our readers, our volunteers, our submitters, our Editorial Board members, Executive Board members and our staff, and most of all to our founder Candida Lawrence. She had a vision when she created Memoir and I can’t express how thankful I am to have been a part of it.

For now,
Claudia Sternbach
Editor in Chief, Memoir
