HUMP Day Behind!

Hello everyone… Oops, this is what happens when you have back-to-back sibling reunions, graduations, and college departures, and general hubbub. Still, here are the links to all of the amazing writing this week:

1) Flash Fiction Fridays airs our August show! Theme is Jubilation and we hear a Super Flash Interview with Madison writer Angela Rydell who reads her story, “Conviction.” Then I read xTx’s story, “Jonah Questions.”

2) My poet friend Rachel Heimowitz tipped me to this amazing Vogue article about poet Sharon Olds: – 1

3) One of my favorite writers, Lidia Yuknavitch stirs it up with “Explicit Violence” at The Rumpus:

4) My former boss, Dan Pallotta, writes about what really happened with former company Pallotta Teamworks: – disqus_thread

5) Alex Pruteanu has a wonderful piece, “Some of Life” up at The Bookends Review. And word on the street is that editor Jason is looking for submissions:

6) Three refreshing poems by Bill Yarrow at Moira Poetry:

7) Helen Vitoria brings panache with her latest, “Phoebe,” at Fwriction Review:

8) A marvelous exchange with writers Christopher Allen and Marcus Speh at I Must Be Off:

9) Amazing friend and brilliant writer Julie Innis now has her very own Facebook Author Page. Join it before you lose sleep:

10) Amy J. Clark is fiction contest winner at Solstice with “Rheumatic Fever:”

I want to thank Michael Gillian Maxwell for making my first JMWW Flash Fiction course one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! His enthusiasm, willingness to try new approaches, coaching/communication skills and natural talent all added up to the highlight, and surprise of my summer. Thanks, Jen Michalski for suggesting this, and Michael, for signing on.
