If you follow this blog, you might have read my story “Ill Not in the Mind,” published online as a preview to the Fall 2014 issue of Pea River Journal. Or maybe you’ve ignored all this completely. Fine. But if you’re looking for a literary journal to hold in your hands, one that will twist you and turn you and make you ache, order a copy of the Fall 2014 issue of Pea River Journal, now available in print.

The theme of this issue is the burden of home. Get’s you thinking, doesn’t it? There are so many ways to approach this theme, and some of the most compelling are represented in this issue of PRJ–the gut-wrenching, challenging stuff that I live for.
I’m honored to be a part of this issue.
“Ill Not in the Mind,” a short story of mine that will appear in the Fall 2014 issue of Pea River Journal (in print soon), is available to read online:

Special thanks to editor-in-chief Trish Harris and her team for seeing something in my work and helping me ready it for general consumption.
I hope this work breaks your heart like it broke mine.
PS I will send out another update when I have more information about where and how we can all pick up a print copy of the Fall 2014 issue of Pea River Journal.
Write something deep-down, heartfelt, true, and the world will remember you.
The Prints Project at Pea River Journal is evidence of that. The premise, while it might appear straightforward, has already led to beautifully layered responses from contributors.
Akhmatova, Whitman, Pound, Dickinson, Baraka, Woolf–these are some of the faces that appeared in the mailboxes of contributors (including yours truly) to the Fall 2014 issue of Pea River Journal. The writer’s task: respond. No guidelines. Just respond to whatever the print stirs in you.
Take a moment and read what all of these talented writers have come up with in response to these wonderful prints:
