Truth – Tell It Slant

By Linda Donaldson

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.
