A number of writer friends had good news to report last week:
- Frances Lefkowitz has a chapter from her forthcoming memoir To Have Not in the current issue of The Sun. If this piece and another I heard her read (also published in The Sun) are any indication, this is going to be one fine book. Read a selection online; The Sun is available at many bookstores, and well worth a subscription.
- Ron MacLean‘s story “The Night Dentist” is in the new issue of Drunken Boat (his collection Why the Long Face?–which I wrote about in a previous post—is available through Swank Books).
- John Fox took first place in Third Coast‘s fiction contest, judged by Ann Beattie.
- Finally, I know a number of people in the current issue of Pank, Alicia Gifford and Andrew Roe among them (both fellow New Short Fiction Series alums, by the way).
