Tin House Friends Who Done Good

One of the reasons I’ve gone to the Tin House Summer Writers Conference three years running is for the community. Having chosen not to pursue an MFA, I get my community mainly from Tin House and from the UCLA Extension Writers Program. Two classmates from my 2007 workshop with Aimee Bender recently reported some good news–and a third has a book out (more on that in a future post).

Liz Prato has a terrific story in the new Iron Horse Literary Review called “The Adventures of a Maya Queen.” (Click HERE for an order form: you can order the issue, Summer 2008–a good one, with features on the short-short and on travel writing–for only $5. And ignore the fact that their website is woefully out of date; it’s a solid journal.) Liz has an impressive list of credits which include:

She has a story forthcoming in the fall issue of Cream City Review, and next year in the anthology Who’s Your Mama? on Soft Skull Press. She teaches writing classes at The Attic in Portland, Oregon. Liz is constantly writing, re-writing, sending stuff out. That’s why she’s a writer to watch out for.

Jocelyn Johnson is hard at work polishing a collection of linked stories I had the privilege of reading and commenting on. One of them, “The Water Cave,” is currently being serialized online at Salome Magazine. More good news from Jocelyn to come soon, I’m sure. She offers up fiction and prose about motherhood and more on her blog. Earlier credits include:
