Freerange Alums Have Their Moments

Freerange Nonfiction is pleased to announce that THE MOMENT is here! From Smith Magazine, (the creators of the bestselling Six-Word Memoirs) comes THE MOMENT: Wild, Poignant, Life-Changing Stories from 125 Writers and Artists Famous & Obscure (Harper Perennial), revealing how a single instant changed their lives forever.

We invite you to read contributors (and Freerange alums!) Karol Nielson, Piper Kerman, A.J. Jacobs, Josh Axelrad, Melissa Febos, Ellen O’Connell, Mira Ptacin, and The Moment editor himself, Larry Smith, along with many other fabulous humans sharing their “moment” in this wonderful book. An innocuous decision, an unforeseen accident, a chance conversation, a tag sale, a terrorist strike, a tweet . . . sometimes all it takes is a single moment to redirect the course of an entire life.

Why not share your moment? (You could be in a future book!) Just submit your Moment to Smith Magazine, via Facebook, or Twitter (#mymoment), or by going to The Smith website itself.
