Ally Armistead Gets Major Ink

Super Congrats to 3rd year Ally Armistead for having her "Girl in Red" chosen as the story of the week smack dab on the home page at Narrative Magazine. Ally's story was also a finalist in the magazine's 2009 Winter Story Contest.

And when you're done reading Ally's story, why not submit something of your own for their Fall 09 Story Contest?

AND if you're 30 or below, Narrative has a contest for that as well.

Note: to view the full story you have to register, which is quick and free and painless (barring some minor wrist pain after typing in your mailing address, fyi)

Hey hey

You know that thing where you write a story and then you put it in an envelope or you attach it to an email or you upload it to some fancy submission site and then you wait and then you get rejected and then you repeat from above until BAM you get accepted and then you get published and then you write an email to the blog letting us know so we can brag about your fabulosity to the world?

It's that time again. September 1st has hit and the floodgates have opened - just some of the journals that are dying to read what you've got:

-Iowa Review
-New Ohio Review
-Cold Drill (opens 9/15)
-Washington Square

And you're still reading this post and therefore not submitting stuff...why? Huh.
