Friends! Countrymen! A story published last spring is this month’s feature over at The Writer’s Bloc. If you love: a) 80s pop culture, b) angst, c) surreal end-of-the-world stories or d) literary lesbian sex, this one‘s for you. Get over there.
Really pleased to have my story, “Destroyed Flowers Everywhere,” out in the latest issue of Fourteen Hills. You can get your own copy here for $10, which if you think about it, is like buying coffee five times and forgetting to drink it because either you were too busy or it wasn’t very good. This issue of Fourteen Hills, though, is killer. Anna Joy Springer and Da’Shay Portis’ work alone are worth sacrificing those five cups of coffee.
Coffee’s so overpriced these days. My story’s about lesbian teen romance at the end of the world. The year is 1983 and Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like The Wolf” plays every other song on the radio. Dunkin Donut’s coffee cost .80 cents. Literature, comparatively, is a bargain.
Happy (and startled, in a good way) to announce that my story, “Bad Things That Happen To Girls”, has been chosen by Lauren Groff as the winner of the 2015 Nelligan Prize. You can read it in this coming fall’s issue of Colorado Review.
And you can hear all about here.
