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." bit.ly/3PtEG3K

“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…
