We have received a new flash memoir for the WA Journal, by Carla Savetsky.

We have a new flash memoir from WriteAngles Journal’s founder and editor Joan Axelrod-Contrada.

Jennifer Acker, editor of The Common, Amherst College’s award-winning literary magazine, will appear on Writing the Short Story panel in the 2018 WriteAngles conference.

The Common is launching its first ever Weekly Writes program on July 1, 2018. Weekly Writes is a ten-week program designed to help participants create original place-based fiction and nonfiction. Sign up is open until June 30, and the $15 fee includes one free, expedited submission to the magazine after program completion.

Each week participants will receive:

  1. Three writing prompts appropriate for both beginning and advanced writers. Two of these prompts will focus on generating new material and the third will guide participants through the process of writing one longer short story.
  2. Examples that accompany the prompts, which were directly inspired by content from the magazine.
  3. Weekly writing advice from the editors and insights into what they’re looking for when selecting work for The Common.

After the completion of this program, participants will have three months to submit one piece for free, and receive a decision within one month. Send questions to info@thecommononline.org.

A new submission by Amy Laprade has just been published.

We have just published a new flash memoir by Mohammad Yadegari.

Jim Barnhill, a member of the 2018 WriteAngles planning committee, will launch his new book at a party on Saturday, June 2. His announcement follows:

International entrepreneur Pat Culliney flew high as the wealthy owner of Universe Electronics — until teen lovers found Pat submerged in his Jaguar coupe at the end of the dirt road to death. The medical examiner said suicide; but when attorney-investigator Shawn O’Donovan finally unearthed a receipt for dry ice, he said — murder!

Then, after Shawn’s client, impoverished Torch Walsh, quit his dead-end job to manage a company Pat left him, Pat’s unscrupulous successor at Universe attempted to steal Torch’s business, using a bogus lawsuit, perjury, false arrest of Torch’s mother, assault, extortion, and murder. Threatened with dirty tricks, blackmail, and violence at every turn, Shawn fights overwhelming odds to protect Torch and his mother and to catch Pat’s murderer.

Themes of inequality, corruption, and Shawn’s struggle with alcohol twist into a fast-paced who-and-how-done-it, culminating at the menacing end of the Dirt Road to Death.

The book, DIRT ROAD TO DEATH, is available from levellerspress.com, amazon.com, and Collective Copies, 71 South Pleasant St., Amherst, MA and 93 Main St., Florence, MA starting June 2, 2018.

A launch party is open to public at Pioneer Valley Performing Arts School, 15 Mulligan Drive, South Hadley, MA June 2 at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium.
