Mourning Crow Toes Quarterly, Lucky Leprechauns, Contests, Workshops, and More

I’ve been mourning the demise of Crow Toes Quarterly this week. In case you haven’t heard the news, please read Publisher Christopher Millin’s comments here. To celebrate the magazine’s fabulous four-year run, I’m giving away a copy of its twelfth issue (includes my story, The Cloud Warrior, accompanied by Rebekah Joy Plett’s perfect illustration of my rock-climbing heroine) as part of this weekend’s Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop .

Speaking of which, I’ll also be giving away a copy of Tyree Campbell’s Pyra and the Tektites, featuring another brave young heroine. The Hop starts on Thursday so be sure to check back for all the goodies.

In other short-story news:

-Goodreads is sponsoring a Spring Short Story Panel starting today.

-On May 21, 826michigan Ann Arbor hosts a talk by novelist and short-story writer Peter Ho Davies. Click here for more information.

-And a couple of contests to consider: Gemini Magazine and Absent Willow Review

That’s it for now. See you on Thursday for the giveaways.
