Whenever I get an email from somewhere I’ve submitted writing to I’m always both dreading and excited to open it and read what’s inside. It’s either a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ – simple as that. Every writer knows that feeling when it’s a ‘no’, but it is wonderful when you open that email and it’s a ‘yes’!
On July 17th Vine Leaves Literary Journal will launch Issue #15, which will be available online and in print, and will include my vignette ‘October’.
It’s fantastic to be a part of this literary journal. They publish vignettes, which the journal describe on their website as the following:
“Vignette” is a word that originally meant “something that may be written on a vine-leaf.” It’s a snapshot in words. It differs from flash fiction or a short story in that its aim doesn’t lie within the traditional realms of structure or plot. Instead, the vignette focuses on one element, mood, character, setting or object. It’s descriptive, excellent for character or theme exploration and wordplay. Through a vignette, you create an atmosphere.
You can read, or indeed purchase, past issues of Vine Leaves Literary Journal on their website, which can be found by clicking this link –> Vine Leaves Journal.
I’m looking forward to publication day and I shall post links when ‘October’ is published! Can’t wait to receive my contributor’s copy!
