Out of over 825 entries, this ‘ultra-short’ (under 150 words) story was selected as an honoree in the 9th Annual Ultra-Short Competition sponsored by The Binnacle. “Here Lie the Chicken Bones” will be published in late 2012 / early 2013 with the other fifty-two honorees and, of course, the four winners.

The Binnacle has published literature and art for over fifty years. They put out three publications annually: the Spring, Fall, and Ultra-Short Competition editions.

So, check one out.

Or, submit something. It’s always ‘no’ unless you try.

And, congrats to the winners!

“Author Insides” Interview

A snippet from the interview

“I…have probably saved a ridiculous amount on therapy because I write. It’s very freeing—I can floor it the wrong way on the freeway, say good riddance to people I’d like to, or cut a finger off, and it’s all harmless. As well, though, I have found compassion for others I might not have understood if I hadn’t examined a character as deeply as you must to be able to slip into their skin.”

~ N on the Vagabondage Press Blog

Read “Nineteen Degrees,” a story about what it was like to have held a hummingbird.

“…I close the towel around her, cupping her in my hands. She is so light, like a penny, and each time she stirs it is so faint, like moth wings…”

~ published in the August 2011 Issue of The Battered Suitcase from Vagabondage Press  and an honoree in the eChook Digital Publishing 2011 ‘Tis the Season Competition

Watch for two poems in Love Notes from Vagabondage Press, out just in time for Valentine’s Day.

thank you Jessica Powers and Ann and Amanda Angel for including this story in Silent Embrace: Perspectives on Birth and Adoption from Catalyst Book Press
 
writers receive so many rejections, and sometimes it’s fun to share the rare acceptance note or announcement…
Dear Natalie:
 
While your story “Revisions” didn’t win one of the monetary prizes, it was one of the eight top contenders. Out of 622 entries, that’s quite an accomplishment and I hope it means something to you. With your permission, I would like to post your story on the Glass Woman Prize web page…
 
…In any event, congratulations on a compelling and interestingly told story. All the best to you,

Beate
