I have a couple of things on the radar in January that I wanted to pass along. The first is that I'll be guest-editing Smokelong Weekly from January 3rd to January 7th. I get to choose one piece for the weekly site and pass along a few other recommendations for the quarterly issue. Smokelong is one of my favorite journals, and I'm especially proud to have work there. I hope that I will have the opportunity to read some of your work for Smokelong as well.
I will also be a judge for the Maryland Writers Association 2011 Short Works Contest. The contest opens December 27th and closes February 6th, and there are cash prizes. I hope you'll submit your work!
