There are some short stories and poems that (A) I don’t plan on submitting to contests, (B) have already won a contest, or (C) have already been published and the rights remained with me. I’ve been trying to think of a way to share them with you easily in one place and not need you to sign up for anything new. Finally I’ve discovered that Goodreads lets me post my writing – anything I want! I’ve already posted my poem “Words Can Form”, winner of the Steven Barza Collegiate Prize from the Poetry Society of Virginia in 2007. I also posted a short story called “Wisdom’s Creation” that I hope you’ll enjoy, especially if you love libraries.
Find my fiction creations here: https://www.goodreads.com/story/list/584058. I’ll post more shorties and poems, and maybe even a section from Locke and Keye closer to publication. Maybe haikus, or even Symbolic Experimentalism pieces!
Twitter is having a fiction festival November 28 through December 2 (#twitterfiction), and I will be posting a tweet each day – each tweet will be an entire piece of symbolic experimentalist writing in 140 characters.
Here’s my first one to give you a taste of what I’ll be tweeting: His sweater was unravelling at the neck. His mouth was a blackhole. And the more he sucked in, the further he unravelled.
The second one: I’m in a locket in her chest cavity. Their photo behind me is 100x my size. I burn every second of the day. There is no key.
Follow me on Twitter to see my next three symbolic experimental tweets.
