I am excited to announce that my flash piece, “Crumbs and Porcelain Cup,” was recently published in issue 69 of beautiful Bayou Magazine. This was my favorite flash piece to write. I am making the story available on my website. Hope you enjoy it!
I’m thrilled to announce that my chapbook, We Cradled Each Other in the Air, is available for purchase on Amazon. It contains a variety of meditations, lyrical pieces, and absurdist narrative shorts, and it’s part of a book-length volume with the chapbooks of writers Chella Courington and Diane Payne. I’m grateful to novelist Samrat Upadhyay for the following blurb:
“Spendl’s fiction pieces in this chapbook impress and instruct. These sharp gems are like, as Nobel laureate Nadine Gordimer has said of this form, ‘flash of fireflies.’ With swift movements they illuminate the vulnerabilities and triumphs of the human soul.”
In other news, my new flash fiction piece, “Crumbs and Porcelain Cup,” will be published by Bayou Magazine from The University of New Orleans. I completed the piece recently–during a lunch break at a local coffee shop–and am excited to have found such a lovely home for it while still riding the high of writing it.
