I’ve been writing some short stories and essays, and one of them was published this week in The Raven’s Perch, a classy online literary journal. Find it here
These journals amaze me. It must be a great deal of work to review hundreds of submissions, and keep up the website and a mass of related details, but all over the country, maybe world, there are literature lovers who take pleasure in doing it. They feel to me like the comedy clubs that are used to find out whether the joke works. The Marx Brothers honed their skits that way. So does Jerry Seinfeld.
Come to think of it, maybe I should work on a story for The Moth. Seems like a lot of work, but would be worth it.
I hope you enjoy the story, and if you have any edits, comments, suggestions, critiques that would make future fiction pieces better, feel free….
