Hey, I just got done digging my car out of the ice/snow and almost forgot that today was the day that a flash essay was going live! It’s called “Last Chance,” and it’s at Tributaries, which is an online section of the journal The Fourth River. Now, The Fourth River is a “journal of nature and place-based writing, published by Chatham University’s MFA in Creative Writing Program. Chatham University is in Pittsburgh, folks. And I am very grateful that they gave these few moments in time a home there; special thanks to Editor-in-Chief and Nonfiction Editor Sheila Squillante. I also want to give a shout-out to Denton Loving, a writer I met at Bennington, who compiles and puts out a very helpful call for submissions from literary journals. That’s how I heard about Tributaries in the first place. Thank you, Denton!

“Last Chance” is a quick read, but I hope you’ll check it out and savor it all the same. Thanks for your continued support!
