Pennsylvania Literary Journal Features “Old Spruce”

My story, “Old Spruce” is featured in the most recent issue of Pennsylvania Literary Journal. Along with other fiction and poetry, the nearly 450-page issue features academic essays, literary criticism, and more.

Some readers may remember an earlier version of my story “Old Spruce.” I read an earlier, shorter version, “Leaving,” on Baltimore’s NPR station years ago. The story of a woman who lets her yard go wild at the advice of the tree at its center, this is a story that began back around 2003 at the same time I had begun writing stories to include in Tracks: A Novel in Stories.

The Pennsylvania Literary Journal Spring 2020 issue is offered online as a PDF, or you can purchase a print copy
