A slippery concept “slanted truth,” the theme for our upcoming issue of the PSB Literary Journal.
I’ll admit, “a little white lie” was the first thing that came to my mind – those polite statements that omit our real feelings or opinions. Off-the-cuff edits of the real story, deflecting the presumed judgment of listeners or readers.
Then I began reading the submissions and saw more subtlety.
- The unfolding of truth that occurs over decades.
- Slanted truth read between-the-lines of spoken dialogue in thoughts unexpressed.
- Realizations woven together by parallel experiences in different generations.
- Memories as seen through the prism of circumstances not perceived at the time.
Your editors are extending our Journal deadline for the Winter 2020-21 issue until February 15, 2021.

The Pearl S. Buck Writing Center began in 2010 under the title of Writing at a Writer’s House. Our purpose is to respectfully continue the successful writing partnership and networking of Pearl S. Buck and her husband, Richard Walsh. Public information about the center is available at www.pearlsbuck.org/writingcenter. Interest quickly grew into the many activities offered by the Writing Center today. The PSB Writing Center has served approximately 500 people through its workshops and published 17 books through its WCP/Writing Center Press, continuing the writing legacy of Pearl S. Buck, with writers writing at a Writer’s House.
