Today my piece "No Place Like Home" is live at Atlas and Alice. Like many of the other pieces I've had published recently, this started in a Kathy Fish workshop. It's a piece of microfiction, so we already had strict word constraints (150 words or less). To add to the challenge, Kathy gave us a … Continue reading “No Place Like Home” published at Atlas and Alice
I wrote a craft essay for Flash Fiction Magazine about creating characters in flash fiction. With such constraints, it's easy to think something's gotta go - plot, characters, a turning point. How can you find room for it all? Read the article for my insight.
If you didn't know I was a poet... well, you'll soon find out why I keep that side of me under wraps. In all seriousness, I'm proud of this acceptance because it came from THE ANGRY ROBOT running things at Versification Zine. It took me five tries of five line poems before I earned this … Continue reading Poetry and Photography in Versification

Sunday we polished our work and submitting pieces to The … Continue reading Four Flash Pieces published at The Write-In

Today my piece "At Least I Have Nothing" is live at Rejection Letters. Back in December of 2021 they had a call for "One Sentence Shit" and I knew I had something to submit! This story came from a prompt in the SmokeLong Quarterly workshop to write one breathless sentence. I was listening to the … Continue reading “At Least I Have Nothing” published at Rejection Letters
Today my piece "Witches Do That Sometimes" is live at MicroLit Almanac. I get Kathy Fish's newsletter, The Art of Flash Fiction, and try to make time to do her writing prompts because they're fantastic. After a rough day at work in February, I knew I needed to stretch my creative muscles. I saved her … Continue reading “Witches Do That Sometimes” published at MicroLit Almanac
I've always loved March because it's (usually) the beginning of sunshine and spring weather. We've had some snow and storms lately, but it's still my month. I had a blast with the March Faxness competition and had a flash piece, "Freshman," find a home after 12 long years. Now I'm wrapping up my favorite month … Continue reading Photography Published at FERAL and vulnerary magazine
