Stone Canoe has accepted one of my stories for publication! I’m grateful this piece found a home because it contains passages that are easy to dislike if the reader isn’t in the right frame of mind. Even though the story plays with the intersection of those elements and the reactions to them, it’s all for naught if an editor dismisses it out of the gate. So thank you, wise Stone Canoe editors.
Also, I said I wouldn’t post acceptances any more but it has dawned on me that such a practice would leave this blog even more desolate than it already is.
