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.
This is humbling news, considering all the good work that the folks at Cheap Pop have put out since their debut: “Two Thousand Miles Running” has been nominated for Best of the Net 2014 by Cheap Pop editors Robert James Russell and Elizabeth Schmuhl. Read more about the nomination by following the link below:
I encourage you to read the other nomination, “Jellyfish,” by Zara Lisbon. It rocks. And if, after reading my work, you feel so inclined to reach out to me, that would be pretty cool too, no matter what it is you have to say.
I’m pleased to share my most recent publication, a peculiar piece of micro-fiction written quite a while ago. It is nice to see it find a home at Cheap Pop, a little micro-fiction rag that has generated quite the buzz in just a short time.
Two Thousand Miles Running
I do hope you enjoy reading this piece.
P.S. Stay tuned for some of my upcoming publications, including pacificREVIEW, WhiskeyPaper, Lunch Ticket and Timber Journal.
