Dusting off my blog here with some news…My piece, “Collective Nouns for Humans in the Wild” was recently published at the wonderful Jellyfish Review. I’d been asked to contribute by editor Christopher James to celebrate their 2nd anniversary and had another piece cued up, but then the shooting in Las Vegas happened and I was so shaken and devastated I wrote this piece and asked Chris if he’d publish it instead. To his great credit, he agreed. Anyway, it weighs in at under 150 words and I’ve seen people call it a poem, a flash fiction, even an essay. I think it’s sort of a hybrid piece, a prose poem. Doesn’t matter. I’m glad I wrote it and I’m extremely grateful for the huge response. Thank you, everyone who has read and shared the piece and for those of you who wrote to me about it.
