July Update

The summer is speeding by, more than half over now, and while I’ve mostly spent it teaching and chasing a now 3 year old, I do have a few updates on my writing.

First, the new issue of Beecher’s Magazine is out and available for order.  It contains my story “Uncle Frank,” which was selected by Kevin Moffett as the winner of the Beecher’s Fiction Contest for this year.

My next piece in the Speaking of Risk series went up a few weeks ago, and new one should pop up in the next couple of weeks.  Keep an eye out for the new one.  I’ll be talking to Michael Farris Smith about the risks he took in his new novel, Rivers, which will be out from Simon and Schuster in September.

Finally, I’m excited to report that I’ve joined the reading staff for Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading series.  If you’re not subscribing to Recommended Reading, I encourage you to do so.  It’s free, and each week you’ll get a killer story in your inbox.  Here’s a link to Roy Kesey’s great story “Any Deadly Thing,” which appeared in Recommended Reading last February.

    Wow. Busy, productive summer! Just got my GRIST journal that contains your story and I’m anxious to finish it (I heard the first part on the video from your recent reading…you left me hanging! Anyway, congrats on your publications and other accomplishments. That’s great! Love to you, Ann & Erin from UG and AM (aka AF)
