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.

“O Adjunct! My Adjunct!” & Fairy Tale Review

My essay “O Adjunct! My Adjunct!” – about the adjunct instructor who changed my life, and why that’s so complicated – is out at The New Yorker. (It actually came out last week, but I’ve been traveling.) I spoke about the adjunct issue on KCUR’s Central Standard this morning.

Also, a story sale! My story “The Old Women Who Were Skinned” will be in the The Ochre Issue of Fairy Tale Review next spring. I’m a longtime fan of Fairy Tale Review, so I’m really excited about this news.
