Why Are You Even Sadder?

If you enjoy reading Electric Literature, join our mailing list! We’ll send you the best of EL each week, and you’ll be the first to know about upcoming submissions periods and virtual events.

The holidays are upon us, and in the true spirit of the holidays here is a survey that seeks to plumb the depths of your stress, malaise, and general unhappiness. The survey below was inspired by Jason Porters short story “We Were Down,” which you can read starting Christmas Day at Recommended Reading.

Recommended Reading is free every week online, and available as an iPhone app.

The author of the saddest survey — judged by Jason Porter — will receive a free phone session with a life coach. Fill yours out now.
