I’ve got a few new pieces out in the world.
I wrote the first, a flash fiction called “Everyone Fails,” out of frustration with super hero narratives. I kept thinking about the strict limitations on character and of all the various wonderful super people who are left out. It’s now live at Lost Balloon and you can find it here.
The second is the micro-est of micro-essays and a meditation on grading papers. River Teeth has included it here on their Beautiful Things page.
Finally, my essay “The Gun That Won the West,” a meditation on Sarah Winchester and contemporary gun violence, is in the latest issue of Prairie Schooner. If you would like to get a copy for yourself, you can buy one here. My essay appears on p. 56-68.
Finally, I’m thrilled to announce that my flash fiction “Your Mother Was a Dragon” was a finalist for the Mid-American Review’s Fineline Competition and will appear in the fall issue.
