The Glimmer Train bulletin is out, so I can officially announce: my story “Even Angels Are Astonished” has won first place in the Glimmer Train Fiction Open. The story will be published in Issue #93. Linda and Susan–the Glimmer Train editors–have been incredibly warm and supportive, and I’m truly honored to be featured in their magazine!
In the meantime, I have an essay in the bulletin on the place for light in fiction, in which I reflect on feeling like a naive young girl in my early grad school experience. Find it here.
