Issue No. 8 from Barren Magazine is out, and features my story, “The Virgins,” among among so much fantastic poetry, prose, and photography for your weekend entertainment. (Thank you to the editors for letting my story sit among such great company!) See also my friend (and Rust Belt Girl follower) DS Levy’s flash fiction piece, “Tengku,” my fave poem of the day, “Barrels of Fruit,” by Caroline Plasket, and more gritty, rusty photography–along with sweeping skies and far-off places–than a girl could shake a stick at.

Happy weekend, and happy reading and viewing.

What’s in store for your weekend?

  1. Thank you so much for the shout-out, Rebecca! I’m honored, thrilled and just darn excited (how’s that for a “Midwesternism”? LOL) to be included in Barren, and to likewise have my flash present with your wonderful story, “The Virgins.” Your characters will stay with me for a long, long time!

    1. Thanks, Deb! And your characters–my hand is still with their hands in the mold…such a meaningful and tactile moment. Hope you’re having a great weekend and celebrating your recent publications!
