The little story that could, ‘Made Light,’ (first published in The Future Fire) is in the latest Heiresses of Russ from Lethe Press. Along with stories by incredible writers like Susan Jane Bigelow, Ken Liu, Seanan McGuire, Nicola Griffith, Alex Dally MacFarlane, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, Seth Dickinson, Benjanun Sriduangkaew! There is nothing better than having your work published with the work of writers whose work you admire and adore. HUGE thanks to the fabulous editors Jean Roberta and Steve Berman!
Also, look for a flash sequel(?) to ‘Made Light’ in an upcoming The Future Fire anthology.
This week’s This Writer’s On Fire is Naomi Jackson and her incredible novel, The Star Side of Bird Hill.
I love writing this series because I get to read such incredible work then fangirl the hell out of it. 🙂
I have a piece of flash prose/poetry, “Beauty Sleep,” in the latest issue of the luminous Flapperhouse! It’s a fucked up re-telling of Sleeping Beauty in only 470 words.
And another Writer Profile at The Butter. This Writer’s on Fire is Alice Sola Kim.
My non-fiction flash piece, “Dog Lover,” was a finalist at Gigantic Sequins!
I’ve been very very busy doing CLASSIFIED research for Roxane Gay (don’t even ask) and writing This Writer’s on Fire at The Butter (also for Roxane Gay). It’s is the most awesome job in the world to read great work then write what amounts to a love letter to the writers. It’s all love.
The amazing writers so far:
Mecca Jamilah Sullivan
Cathy Linh Che
I finally get to announce that I’m not just the fabulous Roxane Gay’s new research assistant, but also an Assistant Editor at her site, The Butter!! I’m beyond excited about this. Roxane Gay is an incredible writer and I can’t believe I get to work for her. To say that she’s one of the most important writers of our generation is an understatement. Seriously, her sentences alone will make you cry with joy (and maybe a little jealousy). Read her stuff if you want to learn about writing and the world. I’m trying not to fangirl out and be all professional here, but apparently that’s impossible.
