Fiction update and workshop news

I’ve got some ground to cover, so I’ll get right to it:  Triangulation: Habitats is releasing soon.  Here’s that IndieGoGo link one more time if you’d like to support the anthology and get some cool incentives.  In other fiction news, I sold a short story to Fireside Magazine!  It’s called “Song of the Balsa Wood Bird,” due out next year. 

For reprints, my story “Exchange (A Coral Study)” will be in Mermaids Monthly later this year, in the All Ages: Young to Old issue.  And the podcast Black Women Are Scary, which celebrates and produces short horror stories by BIPOC authors, will feature my flash story “Neck of the Woods” this fall. 

Let me pause here.  Folks, I can’t tell you how much I deeply admire each of these publications, whether they’re new or recently reinvented.  I’m so honored to be part of them. 

Okay, now for the workshop news:  Elizabeth Beechwood and I are baaaack …  We’re offering our three-hour workshop on Creating Nonhuman Characters once more online, this time through the Hugo House.  Registration opens next month.  For more info on this Nov. 21 virtual workshop, see my Events page and the Hugo House fall catalog (which is packed with fun, in-depth classes for writers).  There are scholarships available.  We welcome writers of all genres, forms, experience levels, backgrounds, etc.  I hope you can join us.
