In five days it will have been exactly six months since I submitted a piece of fiction to storySouth, so I’ll be knocking on their door to see if they want it or not. (Six months is not an unreasonable reading period, but it feels like an eternity when you’re waiting for an acceptance or a rejection.) I think it’s a solid story, and I’d love for it to be all up on the interwebs so you can read it!
In the meantime, there are some most excellent pieces in storySouth‘s current issue. I highly recommend John McManus’ story “The Gnat Line” and M. Ayodele Heath’s beautiful poem “Things My Father Gave Me (Which I Never Asked For).”
