Literary Journal Recap. As I’ve leaned into writing in this last quarter, I’ve successfully placed at 9 outlets for my short story work. With thanks to Avalon Literary Review, Horla, Cafe Lit, Peeking Cat Literary Journal, Crepe & Penn, Clever Magazine, Free Bundle Magazine, Fiction on the Web and Danse Macabre. #thankful
My 50 word flash fiction story, “At The Funeral” was accepted for publication with the Avalon Literary Review. Summer of 2021. I’m thrilled to let them have First Serial Rights as it’s a nice little story. Creating these micro-micro bursts demands real economy – and it’s a great too in teaching me the importance of brevity and clarity.
The Avalon Literary Review
The Avalon Literary Review is dedicated to publishing noteworthy works of poetry, short fiction, and personal essays.
2020 has been good to me, despite the global pandemic, of course. This was the year I decided to declare myself a writer of both prose and poetry. Not that I haven’t written films, essays and thesis essays over the years.
But working as a fiction writer, a non-cinema author was a goal that I had always been beyond me for many (unknown) reasons. So, this year, I started publishing and placing my work.
I’ve racked up literary journals online by the score and completed my second novel while I shopped my first. I’m now writing every single day carving out the most fulfilling time as a creative as I spend my time getting stronger, faster and better. I’ve got beta readers, a mentor or two, 3rd party critical acceptance and have never been happier with my opportunity and options. Thank you everyone whose taken the time to read, to comment or request materials for publication. #writer
