Here it is.
I promised I’d post it when the link went live. Here it is: THE INSTRUCTION
Paper Darts editor-in-chief Meghan Murphy had this to say when she launched the link today on Twitter:
In my 10 years as the head editor for
@PaperDarts, no story has meant more to me than “The Instruction” by @margaretmalone. Survivors of domestic violence, this one is for us. I am so grateful to the women that make publishing stories like these possible.
Deepest gratitude to Meghan and all the phenomenal people at Paper Darts that make it a beautiful home for such incredible art and literature.
I’m delighted this particular story found a home in this particular place.
