I have my first short story published at @NecessaryFic this week! It's about a woman who volunteers at a wild life rescue and is experiencing violence in her relationship. I'm proud to be developing as a fiction writer, a new adventure for me!
This May, in honor of Short Story Month, I wanted to recommend the hell out of 30 stories from the last year that remind me just how much I love the form.
So, yeah, starting with @DeeshaPhilyaw, you should read her story, "Eula," because André Spumante tastes better on skin. [+]
"Maybe you’re worried because you want your students to love this story as much as you love this story."
@barrettbowlin on @DeeshaPhilyaw's "Eula" as a sales pitch for "why it's so good and important and essential to read short stories overall."
“Mostly, though, being with other Deaf writers gave me exactly what hearing writers get from being in community with one another: the courage to sit down and tackle the book I really wanted to write.”
@NovicSara is articulate and thoughtful, as always 🤟🏻 theguardian.com/books/2022/m…
