Folding Words, Playing Editor

Got very lucky in 2009 when I landed a gig at Folded Word Press as Managing Editor. Now I get to play with authors and learn the ropes from the lovely Jessie Carty. The projects I'm currently editing are:

Jessie and I are currently developing new projects, so this list will grow by the end of summer. I LOVE SITTING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DESK. Come by for a visit. My door's always open;-)

Early Days

I've finally gotten to the point that I have enough publications to warrant some kind of permanent index. In catching up on old publications, my work may seem schizophrenic. Sorry. C'est ma vie.

My first and second publications were in the children's market. Ladybug Magazine to be exact. "Birds, Bugs, and Bullfrogs" & "Leaves" are not available to read online.

My next foray corresponded with early-educator workshops I was leading at the time. The following non-fiction articles are available to read online from Christian Early Education Magazine:

As J. Sudborough, I published the free-verse "Plum Rain" in Poetry Church vol. 13 no. 1--a print magazine in the UK open to submissions from subscribers. Shortly after that, my sonnet "Open" appeared in the Poetry Church Collection vol. 16, an paperback anthology.

At the close of 2008 (and as J.S. Graustein), my cinquain "Jimmy Buffett Night at Diamond Jim's" appeared in the Modoc Independent News.

Thus ends the summary of my writing life prior to 2009. Are you dizzy--or bored?
