My novel and family have been keeping me busy lately and I've had to let other things slide a bit, this blog being one of them. I plan on at least keeping up one post a week, however, with whatever I can find to throw in the pot.
First up is Kelly's Spitzer's Writers' Showcase in which five of us have chosen a piece of work to highlight.
There are new lit mag reviews at New Pages.
And Cliff Garstang has some interesting reviews over at Perpetual Folly
Dan Wickett has pronounced (along with other participating bloggers) May to be Short Story Month so be sure to check in to see which stories he's discussing on his blog.
Steven McDermott's short story collection "Winter of Different Directions" is now for sale. For anyone who isn't familiar with Steven and all that he does for the literary community both as a writer and an editor check out his blog and his literary journal, Storyglossia.
Have a great weekend!
- Originally from Vermont, I now live in North Carolina. My work can be found in recent issues of REAL: Regarding Arts and Letters, The Jabberwock Review, The Emerson Review, Storyglossia, The MacGuffin, Confrontation, Passages North, SmokeLong Quarterly, elimae, wigleaf, and Pank, among others, and forthcoming from Gargoyle #57 and REAL: Regarding Arts and Letters. One of my stories has been translated into Farsi by Asadollah Amraee, and many others by Jalil Jafari, two of which have been published in the Iranian journal, Golestaneh Magazine. For two years I worked as an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine. Currently, I serve as a mentor for Dzanc's Creative Writing Sessions. I'm working on two novels and a short story collection. In May, I was awarded the Carol Houck Smith Contributor Scholarship for the 2011 Bread Loaf Writers' Conference.
