Readers Are Chattering About Syndic

Readers are chattering about Syndic Literary Journal!

You’ll find a nice collection of fiction and poetry you can read or listen to in the latest issue.

For starters, check out an abridged version of my story “Idle Chatter” both in digital print and audio. “Idle Chatter” is an abridged story from Tracks: A Novel in Stories.

You’ll also find the fiction of my friend and fellow writer Charles Rammelkamp as well as a great shot of one of America’s favorite book stores, City Lights in San Francisco.

LeRoy Chatfield founded the original Syndic in San Francisco and published it 1958-1960. Fifty years later in 2010, Chatfield revived his Syndic Literary Journal and publishes it online at syndicjournal.us

Girl 2, 5, or 7 is Waiting to Meet You

The Potomac, has published my story, “Girl 2, 5, or 7,” in its most recent issue.

The Potomac is a literary journal of poetry and politics. My bit of flash fiction is included in the “Quicktions” section, right next to “Discount” by Caryn Coyle.

“Girl 2, 5, or 7” is a short piece I wrote during my residency at the Ox-Bow artist colony. (It’s fiction, not memoir.)

In the same issue, you’ll find a fine book review of Rushdie’s memoir by Nitin Jagdish, as well as reviews of the latest books of Nathan Leslie and Jen Michalski.

Girl 2, 5, or 7 is waiting to meet you here.
