Next week I plan on sharing some last-minute gift picks—if you’re looking for a specific recommendation, send me an email this week and I’ll do my best to oblige—but for now I hope you won’t mind if I link to a few pieces of mine that have been published recently.
At Tin House’s Open Bar: a short-short, “Thanksgiving,” that also aired on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s State of Wonder (so you can hear me read it in my very own voice, which naturally makes me cringe, but oh well).
And in Slush Pile Magazine (the slush pile is lit-mag slang for batches of unsolicited submissions): a story (and not exactly cheery, I must warn), “Drifting, Maybe Caught.”
Coming soon: a poem in Constellations that includes the word “zombies,” which is a first and probably a last for me.
Thanks for reading, friends! Here’s hoping that you didn’t find this post obnoxious, that you’re staying warm, and that you have a chance to curl up with a good book.
