New publication

Meg Tuite’s “Exquisite Quartet” fiction column in Used Furniture Review. This month’s story is “Scenes from an Open Marriage,” a story I wrote part of.

I have a new story online today — sort of. Actually, I have part of a story: The excellent Meg Tuite runs a fiction column called “Exquisite Quartet”  over at Used Furniture Review. The idea is that she gathers three other writers she knows and trusts, and together the four of them collaboratively craft a single story. Meg and I shared space in the fourth issue of Unshod Quills, where she was the featured fiction writer, and this month she invited me to play in the Quartet, along with Julie Innis and Jordan Blum.

This particular collaboration turned out to be a bit segmented — there were four main characters, and we each wound up taking one and writing bits of the story from our character’s perspective. I love when stories do that (my own story “The Edge of Seventeen” does something similar), and since the story is all about “Scenes from an Open Marriage,” I think the excuse to explore different perspectives separately from each other fits really well with the general themes of the story.

And if anyone’s curious, there’s a character named Sam but I didn’t write him; my section is “Sonja.”
