The literary journal Word Riot has a great blog, “Notes from Elsewhere,” here. You can find links to all kinds of good information for writers. Once you’re done clicking, head over to the journal to read some fantastic creative writing. Word Riot has been listed as one of the top ten markets for flash fiction.
To gear up for AWP in Seattle, RopeWalk Press is launching a new contest about the way so many of us
feel amid that literary throng. In a nod to Emily Dickinson:
yes, we are Nobodies, too.
But at AWP ’14 in Seattle? RopeWalk Press wants to make you famous.
Write a short-short story (350 word limit) destined for immediate celebrity.
The Winning Nobody’s story will be printed beautifully across the front of an artfully composed postcard
displayed and for sale, among other fine postcards of all RopeWalk Press fiction covers, at our table N24,
where we will host the Winning Nobody for her or his very own signing!
Check out the attached guidelines or head straight to our site.
A new story by Carol Guess and me is up at Animal Literary Journal. This time: raccoon babies!
