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!

Borrowed Gas Can, Hwy 99

out in Six Minute Magazine, Winter 2012 edition

 

This one was inspired by a guy and his dog near some Oregon dunes, as was “View from a ’77 Chevy Scottsdale” (in Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or FewerW. W. Norton and Company).

Six Minute Magazine is “a print and electronic magazine…[containing] quality fiction that can be read in under six minutes.”

 Say it will be so…

Despite slashes to arts funding and a rapidly changing publishing industry, an email this morning relit my hope for fiction writers. According to American Short Fiction:

Date: Fri, 23 Dec 2011 06:13:19 -0500
To: me
From: them
Subject: Writers are the next rock gods

…Maybe you’re OK with a world where there’s a widening disconnection from art and people feel powerless to stop that. We’re not. We don’t want to talk about whether fiction is dying, we want to show you how deeply it’s thriving…

Sincerely,
The Editors

I believe! And, I want to shout it to the world, as you can see. I promise to work on the outfit before I hit a stage anywhere though. Until then, pay American Short Fiction a visit. They really are pretty awesome.

Three cheers for the future rock gods–writers!

“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.

 August at the Fair

August limps past the Ferris wheel, a cotton candy wisp stuck to her cheek. She stops, licks her dusty lips with a snow cone-blue tongue while deciding how to spend her sister Summer’s last dollar bill…   <<read more>>
