New flash in Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading

Pretty thrilled to be mentioned in the same sentence as Lydia Davis and Amelia Gray, I’m not gonna lie…

“For the 300th issue of Recommended Reading, which happens to fall on Valentine’s Day, we opened submissions to your 300-word stories of love and heartbreak. Every day this week, we’ll publish two of our favorites from the nearly 500 submissions we received, along with contributions from three greats of flash fiction, Lydia Davis, Amelia Gray, and Kathy Fish. We think of this special five-part issue as a love letter to the thousands of writers who have submitted to Recommended Reading, and the hundreds of thousands who have read our magazine over the past five and a half years. Thank you for sticking with us, and cheers to 300 more.” —Halimah Marcus

My piece is up now, kicking off what promises to be a stellar week. Read it here: “i love you.”

And don’t miss Dorothy Bendel’s terrific piece, “Thank You For Your Order.”
