Hi, friends! 💖 It’s been a while. There’s a lot going on for me at the moment, enough that I’ve actually dropped the ball on NaNo, but today I just wanted to share that three of my short pieces got accepted for publication!
My stories Sacrilege, Twin, and Perfect World are now part of the latest issue of the Aerogramme Center for Arts and Culture’s Mobile Library. The Aerogramme Center for Arts and Culture was founded by Zoë Elena Moldenhauer in March 2020, with the aim of providing multi-digital opportunities during the pandemic closures and furthering artistic creativity among emerging and mid-career artists and writers around the world. She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Painting, Art History and Curatorial Practices. Her curatorial projects explore the intersection of art and activism as a vehicle for social change.
The Mobile Library is the Aerogramme Center’s magazine. Each publication is unique, pairing artists and writers together, at different stages in their careers, to build a collaborative experience. Volume 2 Issue 1 was curated by Zoë around the theme Mythology, and features the following authors and artists: Mark Bickley & Amy Bassin, Carolyn Adams, Eve Lyons, Igor Zusev, James Johnson-Perkins, Kateryna Kobylianska, Laura Moverin, Lu Sakhno, Meropi Papastergiou, Osvaldo Vázquez, Veronica Jarrín Machuca, and yours truly. 😊
I answered the call for submissions as I enjoyed their previous issues of the Mobile Library, and I thought it was really cool of them to come up with an avenue for artists and writers around the world in the midst of the pandemic. Love the combination of visual art and the written word, too! In fact, I’m still not over the art Zoë had selected to accompany my short piece Perfect World, which is part of the Hotel Fen universe.
Enjoyed the magazine? Which piece is your favorite? Which piece of mine is your favorite? And tell me about your publishing success stories, too! 😄
