Significant Objects — Volume 3

Significant Object’s third “volume” of stories — by Damion Searls, Heidi Julavits, Jenny Offill, Jim Shepard, Scarlett Thomas, and 45 others — ran from February through April 2010. SO v3 was a fund-raising effort; it was also a lit journal secretly published on eBay. It raised nearly $1750.00 for the tutoring and mentoring program Girls Write Now.
