Just completed the first official Fast Flash© Workshop this past weekend and it went great! Had an amazing group of smart, talented writers who were so much fun to work with. And the September workshop is already filled! But watch this space for announcements of future workshops.
Today, I received my contributor copy of Heavy Feather Review 4.2 and it’s beautiful. You may subscribe HERE!
Also, I’m very honored by recent acceptances to the University of South Carolina’s literary magazine, Yemassee Journal, and the beautiful and innovative Threadcount Magazine .
THE LINEUP: 20 PROVOCATIVE WOMEN WRITERS, edited by Richard Thomas, is set to launch next month from Black Lawrence Press . I am super proud to be included along with: Laura Benedict, Paula Bomer, Karen Brown, Shannon Cain, Kim Chinquee, Monica Drake, Amina Gautier, Tina May Hall, Nancy Hightower, Jessica Hollander, Holly Goddard Jones, Stacey Levine, Kelly Luce, Nina McConigley, Janet Mitchell, Ethel Rohan, Karin Tidbeck, Damien Angelica Walters, and Claire Vaye Watkins.
Here is some early praise for the anthology:
- “These are stories that live on the edge of the cliff. They’re wild and unpredictable and important and wonderfully unsettling. Somewhere in this volume, you’ll find your new favorite voice.”
- “The Lineup is full of ferocious, dark, and brilliant voices. The book as chorus both troubles and dazzles, as all great fiction does.”
- “The writers that make up The Lineup are more than just provocative. With its anorexic ragamuffins and organ-thieving medical students, its doomed shot-girls and exterminator-besotted housewives, this anthology will pry your eyes open wide and weeping with gratitude to the spectacle of lives being lived under transcendent duress. By turns searing, heartrending, hilarious, grim, profoundly tender and indelibly macabre.”
