With all the horrible things happening in the world to wrap up a terrible 2016, I feel silly promoting myself, but my latest flash fiction, titled "Love Bugs," is now live at the great Split Lip Magazine. You can read my story here, but I'd prefer if you'd check out the other voices in this issue. Click here.
Thank you to Kaitlyn Andrews-Rice, Split Lip's wonderful flash fiction editor. And a thank you to Amanda Miska, Editor in Chief, who's been such a wonderful fixture in the literary community, both as a writer and champion of others. She's essential, and I think her words in the introduction to this issue are best to close out this year. Let's all keep reading, creating, writing, and fighting the terrible, looming administration.
"This time of year can be hard. Holidays and darkness and cold and anxiety about what will come in 2017. I am choosing to be hopeful--it's a choice I have to make daily, because it's not my natural inclination. I am choosing to keep writing and publishing writing because I think Art matters and can change the world. It's not the only thing, but it's one thing. I am choosing to get out of bed every morning and try, which is all we can really ask of anyone." -Amanda Miska
