Micro Longlisted at Smokelong Quarterly

Which is super amazing and kind of difficult to believe. Out of 1,700 entries? I think I might have snuck in the side door for the party. But that’s OK, I’m eating canapes and pretending I’ve been here all along, with a quick eye for the exit, should I need it.

Funny enough, I was longlisted last summer too, for their flash competition. Still working on getting that one placed, but it seems to be closer to liftoff than before.

Anyway, I just mean that this is my favorite summer thing – to hang out with some other people’s awesome words for a little bit. Like we’re family or something and about to pile into a big station wagon with a handful of bathroom stops. And a cooler-full of ginger ale.

  1. Super cool!! I cannot begin to guess which is yours, but I hope you share it when you can.

    Have you ever read Alexander McCall Smith? (Of “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” fame). He wrote a book of short stories that he made up about random old photos he looked at. Pianos and Flowers. I feel like you could do that with the Vintage photos group!!

    All the best, Joanne
