Colum McCann Quote

Quote of the day/week/year from Colum McCann: 

"There is nothing more substantial to place against the cruelty of the world than language.”

More McCann goodness here. (I'm currently reading his latest novel, TransAtlantic.)

The Wigleaf Top 50 (Very) Short Fictions 2014

Yes, it's already that time of year: Wigleaf has announced its annual top 50 (very) short fictions list.

Lots of great writers included, such as Jim Ruland, Lauren Becker, Mary Miller, Ravi Mangla, and Jared Yates Sexton. 

My stories "How to Talk to Children About Death" (published in fwriction) and "The Memory Thief" (published in Atticus Review) also made the long list.
