At boston literary magazine

Robin Stratton, editor of Boston Literary Magazine, e-mailed me today to say she was accepting my flash, Where It Lies, for the summer edition.

This will mark my second appearance at this top-notch publication.  The first was Stand and Deliver, last fall.

Where It Lies is a tongue-in-cheek tale of of golf, with its warm summer days and long drives from the tee box and companionable elbow-bending in the clubhouse.  It’s also about the difficulty of keeping promises.

Watch for it, if you will.  I’ll post an update when it’s on-line.

  1. I posted to this once, this morning, but it didn’t seem to take. So apologies if this is the second one on this you’ve gotten from me.

    Congratulations on the acceptance from the Boston Literary Magazine. I read their last issue of stories and they look like high quality.

    I was recently rejected (twice) by Guy Koehler at FlashShot as my “microfiction” stories didn’t match any of their genres. Perhaps I will try again at BLM and see if they are more receptive.

    Anyhow, I’ve rambled enough. I look forward to reading “Where it Lies” in their summer issue –Alan

  2. The blog monster seems to have gobbled up your other post, Alan. Nasty beast. 😉

    Yeah; Boston Literary Magazine is not a paying market but that doesn’t mean they accept any old thing. I’ve been reading it for a year now and have consistently enjoyed its offerings.

    Have you submitted to Every Day Fiction?

    I’m a staff reader there, but I don’t read every story in the slush pile or even every published story, for that matter.

    If you haven’t submitted, you should give us a shot.

  3. Yes, I submitted a story over a month ago (Mickey G: The Disappearing Man). I know that it could take up to two months. I have another couple in progress and am trying to decide the best place to submit them.

    I’ve had a couple of horrors in at MicroHorror, but I’m not too fond of them as they seem to post 3 to 5 stories at a time and yours could get lost in the pile…
