Tiny Submissions are Still Submissions

I’ve entered a ten word story into Gotham Writers’ A Very Short Story Contest.

Each participant may submit a ten word story.

Consider opportunities like this between novels.  They keep your skills sharp and diverse.  Only a few words submitted to a publisher is still work submitted to a publisher.

“You are Not Alone” has been Published and is Available on Amazon!

Several of my pieces have just been published in an anthology called You are Not Alone: Stories from the Frontlines of Womanhood. The anthology was inspired by the hashtag #Yesallwomen and was a collaborative effort between editor Leah Carey and ten active participants she chose from the hashtag. The book is all about the experiences of discrimination, harassment, and dehumanization that women experience just for being women. Below is the cover of the book, a video sample of one of my pieces within it, and the book’s first endorsement.

You are Not Alone – an Anthology inspired by #YesallWomen

Good news, readers and followers! At least 6 of my poems will be published in an upcoming anthology called You are Not Alone: Stories from the Frontlines of Womanhood. This anthology was inspired by #Yesallwomen. If you don’t know about #YesallWomen, it was a phenomenon that swept across the globe for a month, one of the longest-trending hashtags in Twitter history, and was all about women’s experiences of violence, harassment, objectification, and discrimination simply for being women.

None of the participants featured in the anthology, including the editor Leah Carey, are the originators of the hashtag. The hashtag began with a tweet by @gildedspine (Kaye). The work in this anthology are by writers who began participating in #YesallWomen about a month after its creation. We aren’t the source, we were simply inspired.

The following are small samples of two of the poems I wrote that will be published in the book:
