    Reading: Who is Jane Doe?

    Last December, Sally Reno and Doug Mathewson published my very short story “Stella Is” and nominated it, to my great gratitude, for a Pushcart Prize, Best Microfictions, and Best Small Fictions. This Saturday, I will be reading that story in The Mambo Academy of Kitty Wang zoom event hosted by the illustrious Nancy Stohlman. The reading features Jesse Coley, Meg Tuite, Sally Reno, Francine Witte, the host herself, and me. Join us for an hour (or so) of literature! Saturday, Jan 23 2021 at 12:30 MST RSVP at blinkinkinfo@gmail.com and the organizers will email you the zoom code. Portrait of Jane Doe (cover art above) by Maiya Winter.
