Published in the Apalachee Review

By Ken Brosky
Apalachee Review is a very nice literary journal. So nice, in fact, that I've bookmarked it in a folder I use to randomly pick a lit journal to buy. This folder contains many journals I haven't gotten around to buying, but I really do have the best of intentions. So until the little coins in my pocketbook sprout into full-fledged dollar trees, I'll have to settle for the great stuff they have on t...

Published in Jersey Devil Press

By Ken Brosky
I recently had something published in Jersey Devil Press (you can find it here!), and while I've visited the site from time to time to check out the stories, a recent email had me heading back for a fresh look. Surprise, surprise, I found something to share. Tends to happen when I start wandering around these magical tubes we call the Internet. On a completely unrelated note, I'm reading Grypho...

Published in Pif Magazine

By Ken Brosky
Sometimes I read a short story that has such a fantastic narrative voice that it literally inspires me to go over to my typewriter(!) and try writing something similar. No, I don't want to steal Kate Horsely's voice shining through in her short story. I just want to borrow it, use it, and then clean it before returning it with the receipt. From "One Dentist, Many Frogs" by Kate Horsely:   ...

Published in Mid-American Review

By Ken Brosky
Sometimes, while traversing the Internets-super-highway, I find something in my bookmarks folder that I'd completely forgotten about ... which is a bummer because sometimes it's a fiction contest that's already expired. Or, worse, it's a publisher that's no longer taking submissions. Then I remember the odds of winning a contest or getting published are about a million to one and I feel a lot bett...

Published in The Coachella Review

By Ken Brosky
Instead of promoting the Coachella Review's fiction contest winner (Erika Brumett, which you can read here), I thought it might be nice to share a story from that same issue that I thought was pretty darned great, to say the least. That isn't to say Brumett's winner isn't great--it is! You should read it!--but let's face it: the winner gets all the publicity, and she certainly doesn't need a shout...

Published in BLIP Magazine

By Ken Brosky
... Formerly the Mississippi Review Online. Ah, it's always nice to see the bigger literary journals dip their toes into the Internets. I think there should be a rule: literary journals should evolve technologically at a faster pace than President George W. Bush. That means if George W. Bush sets up a blog, every literary journal in the country should already have one set up. If George W. Bush sta...

Published in Moon Milk Review

By Ken Brosky
One of the few nice things about Facebook is that you can become friends with editors and their literary magazines, which can occasionally lead to some interesting conversations (if the editor chooses to talk to you, of course) as well as fascinating links. Like this one. Who knew Flavorwire was putting together a list of online literary journals and ranking them? Not I. Why would I? I'm not Go...

By Danielle Rae Bryant, published in BLIP

I found this particular short story while I was combing through The Pinch's website trying to find something I could share. I've been a fan of The Pinch for awhile now but I noticed they don't put anything online ... yet. I did notice, however, that they provide links to contributing writers' homepages, which is a nice way to get interested visitors over to a favorite writer's site so they can fin...

From the Hayden's Ferry Review

By Ken Brosky
I've been reading my issues of the Missouri Review and One Story and loving every single issue, but that isn't why I've been so busy. You see, I think August is going to be one of those months where I'm going to get something published. Inundation. War by Attrition. Not only that, I just received my MFA from the University of Nebraska-Omaha, so that was taking up a lot of my time, too. But I'm ...

Published in Two Hawks Quarterly

By Ken Brosky
I happened upon Two Hawks Quarterly after reading through a recent issue of Poets & Writers, and now it's bookmarked in a folder I call "Lit Mags 3." Numbers 1 and 2 are already so full that I have to scroll through them (kind of annoying in Firefox's toolbar). Two Hawks has been putting out some good fiction recently, so I think it's time to share one. From "Granite," by Zdravka Evtimova: �...
