So Excited!!

I'm thrilled to say that the Vine Leaves Literary Journal has just come out, and even more thrilled to say that one of my stories is included in the roster. You may know many of the contributors besides me, so have a look. I love short pieces--they're fun to read, they usually have some sort of viewpoint that will flip your mind around; they're funny, poignant, lyrical. So have a look and . . . enjoy! You can read the first issue here. My story is titled What Would Yoko Do? I wrote it this summer after thinking about how revolutionary so many of Yoko's ideas are, and was curious how that type of ground breaking thinking would relate in a small, isolated setting. I know Yoko causes good and bad reactions in people, so it was a risk, but I wanted to take that risk and show the innocence at the root of her messages. Mostly it was a work in abstract writing. Let me know what you think.

Take care and have a wonderful Friday night!

  1. I LOVED your piece. I loved its abstract nature, how it built to a climax. The last two paragraphs need to be read out loud. Wonderful job, Amy. Wonderful, wonderful job.
