Wigleaf Top 50

The Wigleaf Top 50 is up, featuring great stories by Matt Bell, Jimmy Chen, Lydia Copeland, Molly Gaudry, Lindsay Hunter, Shane Jones, Darby Larson, Sean Lovelace, J.A. Tyler, and lots more.

The Long Shortlist features stories by Jimmy Chen, Kim Chinquee, Lydia Copeland, David Erlewine, Molly Gaudry, Roxane Gay, Greg Gerke, Lily Hoang, Jac Jemc, Darby Larson, Charles Lennox, Sean Lovelace, Adam Moorad, Cami Park, Meg Pokrass, and Brandi Wells. There are also stories by writers I want to read more of, like Kathy Fish, Amelia Gray, Brian Evenson and Joseph Young.

The Long Shortlist also includes my story “Shovel,” published in Abjective. This story appears in my chapbook Snowing Fireflies, which is coming out soon. I’ve never been ‘recognized’ for a piece of writing, so this feels pretty good. Big thanks, Ravi…

Writers I would’ve liked to’ve seen on either list include Big Melly-Meltron Bosworth, Ethel “You Don’t Mess with the” Rohan, xTx-tasy, Crispin “You’re Not Only Great, You’re the” Best, David “Widow’s” Peak, J. Michael "Jordan" Wahlgren, Andrew “The Borg” Borgstrom, Ben “Franklin's Electric Kite” Spivey, Jason "Voorhees" Jordan and Audri “Audrey II” Sousa...

Hey Eric, I just read this. Congrats and thanks for the nickname. Did you know that I won a research award for a 20 page paper I wrote on Benjamin Franklin in college? Fitting. HA.
