My short story "Road Trip, 1977," which I wrote in a fiction workshop at school this semester, is live today at YARN! It's a reflection on memory, on aging, and on growing up. And it wouldn't be as polished and pretty as it is now without my creative writing class and professor, and the editorial genius of YARN's editor Kerri. Thanks to each of you!
YARN (or Young Adult Review Network) is an exciting new(ish) journal for all things YA: fiction, poetry, interviews, essays. It also just won the "Innovations in Reading Prize" from the National Book Award Foundation! I'm so happy to see my story there.
So. Run on over to www.yareview.net. Or straight to http://yareview.net/2011/05/road-trip-1977/ for "Road Trip, 1977." When you're done, check out the excerpt from Allen Zadoff's new novel, or the inspiring Kody Keplinger's story "Before We Were Lost." Actually, I owe this whole thing to Kody, because I heard about YARN through the link on her blog. Thanks, Kody :)
