Making (re: forcing) the time for writing and submitting is starting to pay off. I am tremendously excited to have had a flash piece accepted for publication in the Metazen Christmas Book, "Down in the Grotto, We Break Bread Together." Metazen is doing a wonderful thing: helping those who really need our assistance. Donations go to the Sunrise Children’s Villages Orphanage in Siam Reap, Cambodia.
The debut issue of Artifice Magazine is scheduled to hit the presses in February; I can't wait to see it. It includes a terrific line-up of authors, including Susan Slaviero, Kyle Hemmings, Blake Butler, and Roxane Gay. My two pieces, "alt img 3" a poem written in html, and "Story (Prepackaged)" a graphic story (of sorts) will appear in that issue as well.
And...I'm looking forward to having @picfic stories appear on Dec. 23 and Jan. 10. Twitter fiction is a demanding little form! Who knew? It's like poetry condensed, except with a petite narrative thread. If you haven't tried it before and are up for the challenge, I encourage you to play around with the form and see what you come up with. It's demanding, but fun.
