Welcome back to Empty Sink Publishing.

This month, we bring you a harrowing piece of creative non-fiction by writer Victoria Barycz, who trains her eye on the heartbreaking topic of abuse and domestic violence. This is a short piece–less than 700 words–but it packs so much into those words that you’ll continue to ponder it for days to come. Raw, gritty, and to the point, we couldn’t be more pleased to publish, “Rites of Passage.”
