"I am going to have two stories and one piece of doggerel published in "Alaska Women Speak," the summer edition. Wow. I submitted these three pieces and they are going to publish all three! You guys have already been subjected to them: "Frozen Grapes," " and the earth has music" (the Stellar's Jay), and "A June without Summer."
"Alaska Women Speak" is a quarterly, published since 1992, and is devoted to "the exchange of ideas, literature, art and heart talk, as well as a statewide update of women's political and social ideas and activities." It is available in Alaska at Barnes and Noble, Borders and independent bookstores around Alaska. I think I saw it on Amazon, too.
