You can see the latest issue of Blue Five Notebook here. It happens to be a flash special featuring Christopher Allen, Gill Hoffs, Nicolette Wong, Foster Trecost, and Martha Williams, with art by Dorothee Lang. A very special issue indeed.

And speaking of flash…
I’m also pleased to announce the last quarterly of 52|250 A Year of Flash is out. Our year of writing ended in May 2011 and we present you now with the best of the last thirteen weeks, plus some new features. This was a helluva project and a source of tremendous joy for me. I am tickled to see our last quarterly review
splash down here.

things are looking up in October because my work with Sam Rasnake over at Blue Five Notebook continues with a smashing line-up of poetry and flash for the rest of the year and also because I’m brewing up the Next Big Thing with 52|250 writing and editing pals John Wentworth Chapin and Walter Bjorkman.
More to come… !
