Today we are happy to announce the news of past contributor Jacob M. Appel! Jacob’s newest selection of short stories, Amazing Things are Happening Here is to be published by Black Lawrence Press this April, 2019. In total of eight stories, Jacob continues to explore themes of truth, specifically how humans tend to bend it. As a physician, attorney, teacher and bioethicist, Jacob brings a unique perspective to fiction laced with humor and obvious knowledge of what it means to live a human life.
More information about the collection can be found here, Jacob’s fiction piece for S[r] Issue 11 can be found here.
Today we are pleased to feature author Jacqueline Doyle as our Authors Talk series contributor.
Jacqueline touches on her essay “Fireflies,” her brand new flash chapbook from Black Lawrence Press, creative nonfiction vs. fiction, and (also brand new) award from the 2017 Flash Prose and Poetry contest at Midway Journal. Jacqueline weaves together different strands of her work to ask how much of herself can be found in her nonfiction, what truth can be found in her fiction, and how both of these forms differ from her academic work.
You can read and listen to “Fireflies” in Superstition Review Issue 19.
