I’m very happy to announce that my story “Sleep” — another of the “fairy tales turned inside-out” I’ve been working on for a while now, will appear in the Summer, 2010 issue of what’s got to be the rockingest parenthood-related magazine around, Brain, Child.
Brain, Child is a wonderful magazine, and I say that not because I’ll grace its pages, but because it contains some of the smartest, most thought-provoking parenthood-related writing around, and some of it is short fiction.
It’s sad to be a dinosaur by your mid-40s, but dinosaur I am, and resigned to my fate. I came of age as a writer — or at least I first learned the “business-end” of writing — in the late 80s and early 90s, and let me tell you, captain, we live in a different country now. When I started writing, Redbook still published short stories. So did Seventeen. Can you imagine such a thing? It’s practically unheard of for a general interest “women’s magazine” to publish fiction now.
Brain, Child bucks that trend — jump on over to their site and subscribe right now.
