Thanks so much to Scott Garson and the Wigleaf staff for picking up my flash piece “How We Drown” (forthcoming January 2019). Honored that you saw something in it!
Thrilled to have gotten the flash “I’m On the Side of the Wildebeest” accepted by American Short Fiction. Giant thank you to writer/ASF web editor Erin McReynolds for her great suggestions and for giving this one a “yes.”
Huge thanks to G.C. Waldrep (Editor at West Branch) for his encouragement this year and his tremendous editorial skills. Very, very grateful for the Pushcart nomination for “What Your Sorrow.”
So honored to have my story “People’s Parties” nominated by Copper Nickel for a Pushcart Prize. Many thanks to Wayne Miller and Joanna Luloff at CN for all their support!
Thanks to Joyland’s Kate Folk and Lisa Locascio for accepting my short story, “Edward Abbey Walks Into a Bar.” I’ve been trying to write about present-tense climate change (without getting into the post-apocalyptic) for a while, and this is a piece that I think (hope) does that. Really happy that it’s going to be in Joyland.
Very excited to have had a piece accepted for Hobart’s Jukebox Happy Hour (forthcoming January 2019). It’s about driving around with my 10-year-old son listening to Mac Miller’s Swimming.
Many thanks to Alan and Jeffrey at J Journal for accepting my short story “Pretty” for publication in their upcoming Spring 2019 issue. I’m happy to have this piece - which has its own #metoo moment - in a journal devoted to justice. It’s also one of those stories that took me a very long time to pull together and went through many, many rewrites (as evidenced by the remaining shifts in person that I neglected to edit out…!).
Thanks to Copper Nickel for giving my short story “People’s Parties” such a lovely home in their Fall 2018 issue! Long-term goal: write a collection of related stories or novel based on the three characters featured in this story.
Happy to see “What Your Sorrow” pop up on West Branch’s listing of their Fall 2018 issue. I’m flattered to be in such good company. Thanks to editor G.C. Waldrep for his encouragement and his willingness to work with me on this one.
