I’m excited to announce that my fiction piece, This First Bright Day of Windy Spring, has been published in the current issue of Calyx Journal, Winter/Spring 2016 , Vol. 29:1, 40th Anniversary Issue.
I’m honored to be part of the Calyx community of writers; I’ve long admired the journal and the women whose work they publish. I was also pleased to find that my piece is available online as one of their featured prose samples.
From their website:
A forum for women’s creative work—including work by women of color, lesbian and queer women, young women, old women—CALYX Journal breaks new ground. Each issue is packed with new poetry, short stories, full-color artwork, photography, essays, and reviews.
CALYX Journal is known for discovering important writers, such as Julia Alvarez, Paula Gunn Allen, Olga Broumas, Natalie Goldberg, Barbara Kingsolver, and Sharon Olds, among the more than 4,000 writers published during our first 35 years. CALYX was the first to publish the artwork of Frida Kahlo in color in the U.S. In 1980 CALYX also featured work by the Nobel Laureate poet Wislawa Szymborska–the first English translations of her work published in the U.S.
