I had another micro accepted today at FLASH FRONTIER, a flash magazine in New Zealand that publishes lots of wonderful writers. (My flash world definitely exceeds the boundaries of the U.S. these days, which is great.) I published in their dance-themed issue a while back. This time the theme is trees, and I wrote an ekphrastic flash about Edvard Munch's painting "Eye in Eye." I was bowled over by the Munch exhibit at SFMOMA, and started a segmented lyric essay about artists and models that I haven't finished.
Just read proofs for my creative nonfiction essay "Long Distance," coming out in UNDER THE GUM TREE next month. And proofs for another piece on Judith Ortiz Cofer ("Teaching The Latin Deli in the Age of Trump"), coming out in a forum at a/b: Auto/Biography Studies next winter. It seems everything's published at once, followed by months of inactivity.
Here's a reproduction of the Munch painting. The colors were much richer in person.
