Internet Writing Workshop members continue to find publishing success in all venues. Congratulations to this week's crew!



Barry Basden

Ramshackle Review has published "Bodensee."

Thanks to all who commented on it.

"The General Will Have His Flowers," has been accepted by wtf pwm for Issue 3.1, scheduled for April 2011.

Thanks to those who helped with this flash.

Used Furniture Review has accepted "Saying It with Flowers" for future publication. Thanks to all who helped with it.


Mark Budman

Buddha's Tear under the title "Buddha’s Tear as Objet D’art" and "Ladies Dress" have been accepted at Sou'wester, a 50-years old Southern Illinois University publication.

Thank you for your crit, Wayne, Elma, Aldo, Shelley, Paul, Judith and Brian.


Ruth Douillette

I'm honored to have an essay included in the March issue of INFOCUS, the monthly newsletter that Kathy Highcove publishes. It's a great issue full of lots of interesting things.

You can read my piece, "Rain" (which could also be called "Pain"), by going here and scrolling to page 12.


Peg Frey

Foliate Oak Literary Journal has accepted my short fiction, 'The Art of Resistance' for an upcoming issue. Not sure when at this point although they said galleys would be available by the end of the month.  This was a piece I started from a practice prompt: graffiti.  Thanks to the folks on the Practice Board who commented on the initial run and to members of the Prose-P board, who read and commented on a revised, tweaked and extended version.


Mel Jacob

I have the following book reviews up at

Tangle in Slops by Jeffrey E. Barlough

Camera Obscura (Angry Robot) by Lavie Tidhar

City of Hope & Despair: City of a Hundred Rows, Book 2 by Ian Whates

Pock's World by Dave Duncan

The Rise of the Iron Moon by Stephen Hunt

My book reviews up at include:

The Attenbury Emeralds: The New Lord Peter Wimsey/Harriet Vane Mystery by Jill Paton Walsh

Begging for Trouble: A Dog Walker Mystery by Judi McCoy

Fruit of All Evil (A Farmers' Market  Mystery) by Paige Shelton

Murder in Passy: An Aimee Leduc Investigation Set in Paris  by Cara Black


Mona Leeson Vanek

Behind These Mountains, volumes 1, 2 and 3 (2nd edition)  are digitally published ~ they went  live this evening at Behind These Mountains.

This project has been ongoing for about ten weeks, and now readers can enjoy books that went out-of-print in 1986 & 1996, and are 2nd hands hard to find.

80 chapters of fully documented regional Montana history, plus 17 maps and many photographs. When all the photographs are uploaded there will be more than 600 images, and the alphabetical name lists also aren't yet complete.


Sarah Morgan

My review of Stolen World: A Tale of Reptiles, Smugglers, and Skullduggery by Jennie Erin Smith is live at the Internet Review of Books.


Roger Poppen

My story, Appreciating Springtime, is up in the March issue of Long Story Short.


Gary Presley

A few months ago I stumbled upon a couple of lists of "the best" e-magazines. Even though I realize "the best" is entirely subjective, I decided to target a few of them. Three rejections later, I succeeded with The Fringe Magazine. That discerning venue published "The Wind."

Note 1: The two lists of "the best" I found had far more venues for fiction and poetry than for creative nonfiction and personal essay.
Note 2: Thanks to my friends on NFICTION for the wise criticism.


Jacquelynn Rasmenia Massoud

My story, "A Moment in Montmartre" has been published by Long Story Short & is now online.

Thanks to everyone in Practice & also Fiction who helped me out by critiquing this piece.

Also, it looks like I'm in good company - I see a couple of my fellow IWW members have some work published in this issue as well.


Dennis Rizzo

An article originally printed in Garden State Legacy was used on YouTube to illustrate the new electronic medium they are developing for the on-line magazine.


Wayne Scheer

My story, "Getting Serious," reviewed in Fiction more than a year ago, finally found a home in Anatomy.

I have two stories in this month's Long Story Short.  "Man's Work" is  listed under flash fiction and "You the Man, Brad" is under micro fiction.

Thanks to Practice for critiquing "Brad."


Jack Shakely

My review of "Aaron's Journey" is featured in The Internet Review of Books. It is not your ordinary Holocaust survivor story, by any means.


Virginia Winters

My story, "Homicide in Haliburton," previously critiqued here, is up at Pine Tree Mysteries. Thanks to all.
