This month we have two auto-fiction stories about parents and children.

Our first auto-fiction piece, “Close to Revelation” written by Janet Lawrence, is set during the pandemic and tells the story of a woman trying to get pregnant using IVF while chaos erupts all around her.

Janet Lawrence is a writer, journalist, and video producer based in New York City. In her writing, she often examines life’s “small” moments to try and find truths that unite us. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and her two children.

Narrator/Voice Over actor: Alexandra Echavarri

Our second auto-fiction piece, “Check Your Tire Pressure” by Corinne Noufi, tells the story of a father and daughter and how their love for each other is expressed in seemingly mundane, but very important, rituals that bring them closer together.
