"The Wood Thrush" on Wigleaf's Longlist of Top Very Short Fictions

Every year I eagerly await Wigleaf's Top 50 Very Short Fictions. This year Matt Salesses made some excellent selections, which I will be reading through over the next few weeks. I'm happy that my short story "The Wood Thrush," originally published in the Spring 2015 issue of Devil's Lake, made the Longlist. Thanks to the Wigleaf team for recognizing my story.

Wigleaf has been good to me over the years. In addition to publishing two microfictions of mine, Wigleaf also chose "Bible Camp" from SmokeLong Quarterly for the 2012 Longlist, and guest editor Brian Evenson chose "The Devil Called Satan Had Me for a Snack" for the 2010 Top 50.
