I’m so excited to have been selected as the Maudlin House Writer of the Week! What an honor. Some of my favorite people in the lit community have been featured there. What great company to be in. You can check it out here: https://maudlinhouse.net/writer-of-the-week-48/
After a few rounds of rejections, being selected as Highly Commended in Ellipsis Zine‘s Flash Fiction Collection Competition really encouraged me to keep submitting. So here’s to another round of chapbook submissions! I’m subbing to three places this time and keeping my fingers crossed.
Well, it’s the end of the road for the Ellipsis Zine Flash Collection Competition. It was great while it lasted. While I wasn’t named as one of the top three finalists, my chapbook was selected as one of the three Highly Commended collections, which in itself is an honor. Many thanks to Steve and Stephanie and the Ellipsis Zine team for such a great journey.
My interview (a first for me) with Josh Denslow about his upcoming short story collection “NOT EVERYONE IS SPECIAL” (a first for him) is now up at The Rumpus! Check it out here: https://therumpus.net/2019/03/the-rumpus-mini-interview-project-167-josh-denslow/
I’m thrilled beyond measure that my chapbook has been selected for the Ellipsis Zine Flash Collection Competition Shortlist! I think I can safely say that this has been the closest that my little chapbook has come to publication. It’s so exciting!
While I’ve garnered several rejections for my chapbook so far, I just found out that it made the longlist for Ellipsis Zine’s Flash Collection Competition! I should find out if I make the shortlist in just a couple more weeks. Crossing my fingers!
My first micro fiction of 2019 is officially up and running at Five:2:One‘s #thesideshow! Be sure to check it out here: http://five2onemagazine.com/skin-game-by-eric-newman/
So late last year I finished putting together my first chapbook titled What Remains and am now in the process of sending it out to publishers. Wish me luck! I’ll keep you updated on the progress.
I just had my first story of 2019 accepted. So psyched to have my micro “Skin Game” appearing in Five:2:One‘s #thesideshow in January. I’ll link when it’s up.
I had a new micro published at the great Bending Genres in the December issue, along with some other amazing writers. Many thanks to Robert Vaughn and Meg Tuite. You can check it out here: https://bendinggenres.com/2018/12/11/got-your-nose.
