Just got a check in the mail for $70 for my essay "Haunting Houses" in NOR: New Ohio Review. Another journal I was thrilled to get into and would certainly have published in for no monetary compensation.
A confluence of readings lately, starting with Beth Ann Fennelly's Heating & Cooling: 52 Micro-Memoirs, then Elizabeth Strout's My Name is Lucy Barton, now a collection of Lydia Davis stories, has me trying out something new: a wandering series of tiny micros about tiny moments. A very flat voice. I really like them. Possibly no one else will but I'm having fun with the form anyway.
