Wild times in Huebertland. Last week I posted to announce that my story, “Enigma,” had made the longlist for the CBC Short Story Prize. This week it’s a thrill to say the story has made the shortlist. This is really a singular honour for me. You can read my story, as well as the other finalists, here.
My latest story, “Silicone Giddy” , has just come out in The Puritan 32. This story is a sequel to my previous piece, “Bellyflop”, which appeared last winter in The Puritan 28. Both stories occupy the core of my short story manuscript, Peninsula Sinking, so it’s great to have them out in the world together. It also means a lot to have so much support from the rad and thorough people at The Puritan during this stage of my carreer. Issue 32 is a beast, swollen with literary protein. It’s moving to have my writing appear alongside so many fellow contributors–Matthew J. Trafford, Emily Schultz, Michael Prior–whom I deeply admire. Read the stories if you want to experience a lively fictional mixture of marriage, sex toys, and electrocution.
