What Makes A Family?

March 4, 2014


Rear Curtain Issue 5 is out, and it’s a beauty. The theme is “family”. The stories are intimate, personal, and varied explorations of what that word can mean.

In keeping with the magazine’s mission to be a resource of learning tools for those who wish to advance their storytelling skills, there is an excellent in-depth essay on the brilliant photographer William Albert Allard. He has an unparalleled ability to see and listen and gain the trust of his subjects, and then use words and images to tell their deeper story. Managing Editor Sabrina Henry uses those same skills to tell his story. Mr. Allard’s response to the piece? “I’d like you to know that this is the best article I’ve seen done on me and my work.” You can’t hope for more than that.

The Editor’s Note by Raymond Ketcham describes the issue much better than I can. This one will invite you to linger. There is something about holding a quality magazine in your hands that online viewing just can’t match. I am so glad these marvelous storytellers get to see their work in print.

You can buy a copy here.

I am so proud to be a part of the Rear Curtain family.
