First acceptance!

Finally, I will have a publication credit.  It's a small dent, but it's a dent nonetheless!

I am sooooo excited.

It's a very, VERY short story (technically the term is flash fiction) but I'd been working on it, on and off, for the past year.  You wouldn't believe how challenging it is to tell a story in so few words.  Hairspray clocks in at 104 words total and will be published in the Foundling Review online literary journal.  Not sure when – the contract didn't say – but I'll be sure to post the link when it's up.

Whee!

Since I write so much about rejection, I should write about the good news as well, yes?  The blog could use some positive energy!

Dear Jennifer,

Nice!

We'll take Hairspray for publication in the online literary magazine, Foundling Review.

Send me in the body of the email some notes on the piece.  Please look over the Author's Corner section from our recent issues to get an idea of what we are looking for.

Also, date and type in your name in the attached Statement and Rights document and email it back to me.

Thank you.
