Sugared Water #001

A collaborative story by me and Carol Guess in the very cool new literary journal Sugared Water. It’s not an animal baby story, but there are animals and babies….

Sugared Water

We’re pleased to announce the release of Sugared Water‘s inaugural issue!

This collection of poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction is something we’re proud to offer up to you. As readers, we were delighted to take these works through the process from our submission period through to binding by hand. The contributor copies are winging their way across the world in small batches—we think they’ll be well loved. Our cover illustration was inspired by the very first piece of flash fiction we accepted. (You’ll see when you crack open a copy!)

CONTRIBUTORS for the inaugural issue, SW#001:

Paul David Adkins, “Romancing Christine Garren’s Among the Monarchs in Iraq Despite Central Command’s General Order 1″
Jessica Bixel, “Lovesong”
Michael Brookbank, “Who Said Anything About Flesh?”
Wendy Creekmore, “Fleshen Mavens”
Rebecca Emanuelsen, “Fred the Fish”
Lauren Gordon, “I’m Building a New Spine”
Carol Guess & Kelly Magee, “The Storm Grower”
