So pleased to see my nonfiction flash “Dark Hallway” in CLEAVER, a magazine I have long admired, which has work in this issue by Josh Denslow, Andrea Jarrell, and Tommy Dean, flash in recent issues from Kim Magowan, Cathy Ulrich, Madeline Anthes, and Jennifer Todhunter, and many more great writers in their archives. I’m a big fan of their senior flash editor Kathryn Kulpa as well (who recused herself from considering my submission, since we know each other, but went through some really fruitful edits with me after the piece was accepted). This is my second publication in CLEAVER, where I published “Early Spring Rainstorm” several years ago. A big thanks to Karen Rile and the editorial team!
Leaving for the airport in an hour. Still not showered or dressed or fully packed.
