I was scrolling through Twitter on my phone as I waited for the Tommy Orange talk to start today at lunchtime (he was great), and I ran across a post from LUNATE announcing their Pushcart nominations. Was bowled over to see my flash "Felicity Leaves the Door Ajar" on their list! They're a very new magazine, but have been publishing great work by some really well known flash writers. I'm honored that they singled out my sort of weird story (one of my very minimal plots).
A long afternoon of student conferences about rewrites, but they were optional, I was gratified to see how many students signed up for them, the work was by and large very good (they're rewriting for their portfolios but also for the student literary magazine contests), and it was several hours well spent. We have next week off, and only one more week of classes after that. I'm going to miss this flash class.
