Publication News: YARN

I'm so excited to announce a new forthcoming publication! My short story "They Held Starlight" will run in the online literary journal YARN sometime in the summer of 2015.

YARN is short for Young Adult Review Network, and it's a wonderful literary journal devoted to publishing young adult fiction, poetry, and essays. It takes submissions from both teen and adult writers, and I may be featuring it in a future Fiction Friday post, because it's fabulous and I've wanted to be published in it for such a long time.

The piece that will be published, "They Held Starlight", was written as a response to the following writing prompt:
Write a story set in a world where people who were born in the day are considered elites, while those who were born in the night are shunned by society.
I basically took that and totally ran with it. I was really happy with how it turned out, and I'm so happy that I get to share it with you all! So, something to look forward to next summer. *winks*

  1. That's a really good writing prompt! Add that to the things I wish I'd thought of first. :P ;)

    1. It definitely was a great writing prompt, and I'd say if you'd like to work with it, go for it! Thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. Congratulations! They Held Starlight was one of the best responses to the prompt we had (can I feel a little bit proud?) Can't wait to re-read it in all its shining glory :D
