My super short story, “Till We Have Faces,” (only five pages!) is eligible for the Million Writers Award over at storySouth. The deadline for nominations is quickly approaching (August 1st). It came out with a very small lit mag, so it needs more readers to nominate it.
The title is taken from the C.S. Lewis book. My best friend and I lived in cities neither one of us belonged to. We couldn’t call them home. We were shadow sisters, fellow writers, and academic colleagues at one point. This is, essentially, the story of us, and the narrative we attempt to spin and unwrite in order to survive.
