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, Pank, and Gargoyle #57, among others. 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. Currently, I'm an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine. I'm also working on two novels and a short story collection. In 2011, I was awarded the Carol Houck Smith Contributor Scholarship for the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference.

Summer Break, Writing and Gargoyle


My youngest has a half day of school tomorrow and then he's on break for five weeks. He'll be going into third grade. An unsettling fact, since it seems as if he was in preschool only a hour ago. He was fortunate to have an amazing teacher (all bright, inspiring teachers, but particularly his second grade teacher), in an equally amazing environment.
In these last weeks while he was in shool, I wrote six new story drafts and sketched out another and I received inspiration for my two novels. I feel best when I'm creating, so this productive time was a gift.

I'm also excited to have a story accepted for Gargoyle #57!

Congrats, Katrina, on the acceptance and all the productivity.

And yes, time flies with the little ones. My oldest son starts kindergarten in the fall. I can't believe it.
