My essay "The Heat Comes Early This Year" has been shortlisted for EVENT Magazine's 2014 Nonfiction Contest!
My flash fiction piece "Cathedral Language" has been shortlisted at Mash Stories.
Read and enjoy, vote and comment if you're feeling inspired—the contest winner is determined by the writing, but votes and comments are good, too.
The contest is based on the old writing exercise where the writer is given a few random words or phrases. There's also a 500-word limit, making for some very compressed, intense storytelling.
FYI, there are themes and language in my story that might be challenging to some readers: this is not fluff. Cheers.
