Exciting developments in writing life, one of which is a long time coming in a couple of ways. In the more general, longer term way, I FINALLY have a creative piece in a print literary journal. Hurrah! In the specific, shorter term way, I submitted this piece over a year ago, and it was allocated to the second issue of the journal.
But now, it’s out! Issue 2 of Atlas Literary Journal is out, and my piece, ‘Trading Pain’ is in it. It’s about hospital and scary things like emergency surgery and ketamine and nasogastric tubes.
I believe it’s being stocked at both Unity branches, Time Out, the Women’s Bookshop and maybe VicBooks? You can find out about Atlas on their website.
ALSO. Another exciting piece, my review of Pip Adam’s spectacular new book The New Animals went live on The Pantograph Punch last week. Read it here. But be aware of spoilers.
