My story “Block Party Games” is now live in the latest issue of Foliate Oak magazine.
Last week I shared an essay from “Fringe” magazine which ceased publication in 2014. This week, I’ve got something from “Pank” which (shockingly and sadly) will stop publishing new work online this year, and their last print issue will be spring 2016. I’ve read “Pank” for years and am incredibly sad to see them go, but I know the fabulous folks who adorn their masthead will carry on in their amazing work in the world of writing.
Go read all kinds of things from “Pank” in their final year. But maybe start with Kara Vernor’s “Four Hands.”
**UPDATE: Pank did not stop publishing after all. I learned that they’d be staying open not long after this post but forgot to mention until now. They’re still there! Go read more from them!
Back by popular demand. Or … just demand. Or … just back.
It’s been a loooong time since I posted a Go Read Something, and I’ve got oodles of stories and poems and essays that I’ve gathered to share! I’ve just been slacking on posting them because … life.
I’m trying to get back on track, so please enjoy!
For this week’s return to “Go Read Something!” please enjoy Rebecca McKanna’s “A Chain of Tiny Disasters” from “Narrative” magazine.
A new short, short story of mine is up in the September issue of Gravel Literary Magazine. Go check out “The Lawn Mower“!
Also, another story of mine was published in Kentucky Review back in May, so feel free to check out “Who’s There” too!
I know I’ve posted a link to Kathy Fish’s work before. She really is adept at the flash fiction form. She’s nailed it time and time again, and this one is no exception.
Go read Kathy Fish’s “Strings” published by New World Writing.
I read a lot of emotional writing. It just tends to be what I gravitate toward. I like authentic characters in unique situations that are just strange and messy enough to feel real.
This story is a perfect example of this.
