This is a new one: I actually placed one of my stories in a contest. Big thanks to Aqueous Magazine, “a literary and visual arts magazine for the Lake Superior region,” for selecting “September One” as the runner up in their 2015 Flash Fiction Contest. The theme was “first times.”

Special thanks to the editorial team at Aqueous for finding merit in my work. I received my contributor copy yesterday and cannot wait to read all the fine authors in this issue.
I was reading creative non-fiction by Rolf Potts today in Indiana Review and thinking, How do we digitally promote the print literature we love? By just mentioning it to spread the word? Linking to the story or the author’s website (if available)?
This disadvantage is, of course, one of the advantages of digital publications like Cheap Pop. Digital works published by these journals can easily be shared with URL and the author’s Twitter handle/Facebook URL in hand. They can be nominated for awards and anthologies.
So we don’t forget them or let them fade.
I am pleased to share a little mixed breed flash fiction/creative non-fiction recently published in The Austin Review Spotlight series (No. 3):

Thank you to Michael Barrett and the rest of the editorial staff at The Austin Review for finding merit in my work–it was a pleasure working with you. As always, I am here to discuss, to read feedback, to engage in any way any of you see fit.
Else where’s the fun?
