Indeed, it does seem as the whole world has gone crazy in the last six months or so. Thus, I have been taking a break from the news, from social media, and from school, to just catch up on my reading and writing. In fact, outside of visiting family and friends over the next week or so, I just plan on cuddling up and burying myself in my early Christmas presents of books.
Right now, I am reading Punctuate's first print issue, which contains my short piece, "Note to Old Irishtown Road." Punctuate is a relatively new journal that publishes creative nonfiction. In fact, Poets & Writers just listed this great journal as one of Nine New Lit Journals that need to be read. I am thrilled that my work has been included in its debut print issue as I have read its online work for over a year now. It's definately a journal to watch!
