Dislocate

with one comment

It’s official. My story “Denver or Bust” arrived in the Spring 2009 issue of Dislocate, the literary magazine published by the University of Minnesota. A package of 3 copies was on my doorstep when I arrived home Friday afternoon. I’ve skimmed through and noticed one edit to my story thus far. It was a quote from an anonymous stranger; not that it makes a big difference, but I can see where it changes the nature of what he said to me, if not the actual meaning. I don’t mind the edit in the least; heck, I edited the story myself about two weeks ago as I prepared to send it off for a contest. I saw a place where things could have been said more effectively, so I touched it up a bit. I’m hoping it places well in the contest. I think the fact that it had been published bodes well for my desired outcome.

You can find out more about Dislocate at http://dislocate.org. I guess there was a launch party– nobody invited me! There are also several “acclaimed authors” included in the publication, as noted on the website. I hope I make good company for them.
