I have a new micro fiction up at one of my favorite literary magazines, New Delta Review. “The Places I Tried to Sit” was born in a mesmerizing and inspiring workshop I took on repetition in writing, led by Mitchell S. Jackson at The Center for Fiction. If you haven’t read his novel, The Residue Years, put it on your to do list. Jackson is a master of language, character, and breaking your heart. His book impacted me like no other this year, and I’m looking forward to his new book, Survival Math, which is due out August, 2018.
