2016 Award Eligibility Post

 

I’ve spent a great deal of the year working on longer projects–including edits for Her Body and Other Parties–so my eligibility post for 2016 is pretty short. I published two original short stories this year: “The Old Women Who Were Skinned” at The Fairy Tale Review and “My Body, Herself” at Uncanny Magazine. I also published two nonfiction/related-work pieces this year: “The Morals of the Stories” at Tiny Donkey and “How to Suppress Women’s Criticism” at Electric Literature.

“Horror Story” in Granta; Interview at Electric Literature

An end-of-October update:CSkLhdAWEAAgDLx

I have a brand-new story up at Granta, just in time for Halloween! You can read “Horror Story” here.

There’s also a wonderful interview with me over at Electric Literature, published last week. There, Rebekah Bergman talks to me about sex, horror, formal constraints, fantasy, gender, and the apocalypse.

Also, speaking of Halloween: I just found out that last year’s Halloween story of mine at Granta (is this a thing now?), “The Husband Stitch,” received a Special Mention in 2016 Pushcart Prize XL: Best of the Small Presses. So exciting!

Happy Halloween, all.
