Magazine Publications

Electric Literature is one of my favourite (and most respected) short story magazines:

Chris,

I wanted to let you know our readers found the first-person narration skillfully rendered, the dialogue colorful, and each aspect of the story’s world and its characters crafted with care. I also would like to pass on what one of our readers wrote: “This is a strong piece with brilliantly absurd renditions of reality.” Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Best,
Penelope
