I’ve been submitting short works to various online journals since 2013. I spent more time on that endeavor in some of these years than others. At the start it was a great motivator and measure of how my work fit in or didn’t fit. At different times, longer projects have moved my focus away from that. My Submittable queue is often empty now although certainly now always.

Here are “probably” my top 3 stories that I would point someone to if they were trying to learn what my work is like:

Untied- Janus Literary

The Outlier- Smokelong

Taking Care- Third Point Press
