new publication: ‘flicker’, a vignette

New publication out today at Pidgeonholes: ‘Flicker’ is a somewhat strange vignette. I call it a vignette rather than flash fiction because it doesn’t really contain a complete story arc. It’s more of a scene, or a glimpse.

Feel free to stop by and check it out:

Also, take a look at Pidgeonholessubmissions page—they have two new special calls. 90s Mixtape will be a collection of short pieces loosely inspired by music of the 90s. Under the #microvember call, they plan to use November to showcase microfiction (under 350 words) and micropoetry (10 lines or less).

new publication: ‘des’, a prose poem

I have a new publication out today. ‘Des’ is a prose poem—that is, it reads like a poem in language, but it’s written as prose, in a paragraph. This piece was published in the inaugural volume of Unbroken.

Check it out here:

From their website:

We seek previously unpublished works of poetic prose, prose poems, and haibun. We will also consider vignettes. Traditional and innovative works are welcome. We want dark and disquieting, we want fanciful and funny, we want surreal and surprising. We want stunning and unusual imagery and language that compels. Remember to keep it in the block, in the paragraph, unbroken.

blog post

This is a blog post so the blog page is no longer blank. I have no idea what will be going here. I suppose it’s also to tell anyone who followed this site during SAD that it’s now meant to be an author site, or a landing pad with a bio and list of publications.

For now, go check out my most recent publication: a bizarre horror-ish (twisted?) flash fiction called GPS, published by Pidgeonholes.

Pidgeonholes is a new ezine run by Nolan Liebert, a friend of freeze frame fiction. From their website:

We want your best work and wordplay, be it literary, speculative, experimental, or something absurdly unclassifiable. Just make sure it’s brief, brash, and beautifully written. While we only accept work in English, diverse ideologies, words, phrases, and pidgins are strongly encouraged.  We believe every genre has its place, but will not accept erotica, splatterpunk, or other extreme works. Sex, violence, and vulgarity are fine, so long as they serve a purpose.
