This was the hellishly hot week I was let go. I was a copywriter in fashion expected to write 65 clothing descriptions a day.

FASHION COPYWRITER BY ELLEN BLOOMENSTEIN 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 63

Do not write about love.  

THIS ABOVE ALL ELSE BY CORIE ROSEN 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 63

This above all else: 

Write nothing pastoral. 

Do not celebrate the seasons.

Do not clasp hands with time. 

Do not write about love.  

(Whatever you do, please don’t do that.)


Can you not see what’s happening?
