A Short, Fast, and Deadly Summer Fling

"Summer Fling", my first poem to fit the 140-character confines of a Twitter update, has been accepted by editor Joseph Quintela of the micro-fiction and poetry site Short, Fast and Deadly. It will go live in the August 8 "Clothing Optional" issue.

Joseph also tells me he attended The Lineup's first reading, last October at KGB Bar, and enjoyed it immensely.

Flattery aside, Short, Fast and Deadly is a great venue: clear goals, very specific guidelines and publication agreement, tapped into the latest technologies. The 140-character limit was just what I needed to execute an idea I juggled for a year. Thanks again to Joseph and staff.
