Blurbs are in for When You’re Down By the River: Stories. Check out the page here to see what the great Neil Connelly, Michael Farris Smith, and Nicole Louise Reid have to say about the chapbook. I’m extraordinarily grateful to Neil, Michael, and Nicole for their kind words. Pictures of the cover design will be coming soon, and after that, I’ll be posting ordering info, so bookmark this page!
My essay “Scars and Dirt: Why I Teach the Modular Story” was published at Fiction Writers Review. It’s part craft essay and part creative nonfiction.
The new issue of Pembroke Magazine, which includes the story “When You’re Down By the River,” is out. It’s available here.
The new print issue of Blue Lyra Review is available for order. It includes my story “A Guest of the Program.”
This year’s print anthology from Steel Toe Review is out, and it includes my story “Offender.”
I just got word that I’ll be part of the short story panel at this year’s SCMLA convention in October. I’ll be reading “Reform, AL,” which originally appeared in Baltimore Review and was longlisted for the Million Writers Award.
I have two reviews of recent poetry collections up at Friends of Atticus, J. Bruce Fuller’s great chapbook Flood and Christian Anton Gerard’s book Wilmot Here, Collect for Stella. They’re both fantastic and well worth your time.
Finally, my review of the newest issue of Confrontation is up at The Review Review.
