I had the pleasure of writing a blurb for a great short story that will be included in the next issue of Fleas on the Dog. This one’s gonna be chock-full of content, including a new piece of flash from me and my first time every publishing a play. It’ll go live next month – links to follow!
New fiction alert! My short story, “Dead Rock Stars,” will be published on Literally Stories on June 10th. This is great site, featuring short stories from all around the world. Check it out. And a link to my story will follow in June!
Just posted a new essay to my Medium page, “Jumping Out of a Perfectly Good Plane” – because sometimes the plane you’ve been flying in suddenly doesn’t seem nearly as perfectly good as it once did.
My piece of CNF, “If You Relax, You Will Float to the Surface,” is live now at Memoirist. On the surface (no pun intended) it’s about me struggling to keep my head above the surface of the water when I was swimming across the SF Bay in my first triathlon, but on another level, it can apply to any situation where you feel like you’re sort of flailing, which is really what prompted me to write it. Anyway, enjoy, and stay healthy!
It’s been a while since I published any creative non-fiction but a piece I wrote recently about my attempt some years ago to swim across the San Francisco Bay will be posted in a few weeks to Memoirist – a relatively new site that features literary autobiographical writing. Link to follow!
And speaking of Fleas on the Dog (which I was in my last Fiction post) Volume 6 will also feature my play “Three Sides” which has been performed in festivals in Rhode Island and West Virginia but this will be the first time it’s published. Should be out in May – links to follow!
New fiction alert: my short story “Room 310” will be published in Volume 6 of Fleas on the Dog in May. And not to give too much away because this hasn’t been announced yet but this piece will also be included in my first and forthcoming chapbook! More details to come …
This is a big weekend for “Geese” – my play about how a gaggle of geese in your parking spot can put everything in perspective will be part of both the Snowdance 10 Minute Comedy Festival presented by the Over Our Head Players in Racine, WI (where it’s been playing all month) and the One Act Festival of New Works at the M.T. Pockets Theatre in Morgantown, WV (where it’s opening tonight)
It’s turning out to be a busy winter for “Geese” – my one-act comedy about how a gaggle of geese wreak havoc on an unsuspecting middle manager and his supportive and understanding (to a point!) wife. “Geese” will be part of the 2020 Snowdance® 16th Anniversary 10 Minute Comedy Festival produced by the Over Our Head Players of Racine, Wisconsin, beginning next week and running through March 1. In addition, I just learned that “Geese” was chosen for the One Act Festival of New Works at the M.T. Pockets Theatre in Morgantown, West Virginia, February 20-23. If you live in either of those areas, and the geese aren’t in your parking spot, you should check it out!
“Squirrels” – my first published short story of the new year – is out now in the Winter 2020 Issue of Door Is A Jar Literary Magazine.
