The Wigleaf Top 50 & Longlist for 2012

Finally, the Top 50 its Longlist went live yesterday, and I couldn’t be prouder of the result and the team that made the decisions this year. BIG thanks to Danielle Evans (author of the multi award winning collection, BEFORE YOU SUFFOCATE YOUR OWN FOOL SELF) for choosing our toppers, and super thanks to the Dream Team of Sean Lovelace, Erin Fitzgerald, Mel Bosworth, Katrina Denza, Shome Dasgupta, Tawnysha Greene, Marcelle Heath, and of course the chief dreamer, Scott Garson.

My job as Series Editor boiled down to cat herding, a task that I am happily handing off to Erin Fitzgerald for the next go ’round. I’ve been involved with the Top 50 for a couple of years now, and I kinda want to get back into contender-mode. Or is it contender-mood?

“Bad Traffic,” by Matt Rowan & “Women of God,” by Tawnysha Greene

I want to draw your attention to two very short stories that popped up on Monday. The first is Mat Rowan’s “Bad Traffic,” which was my Smokelong Weekly pick. When the next Smokelong Quarterly issue appears, the story will be accompanied by my interview with Matt. The second story I want to point you to is Tawnysha Greene’s “Women of God,” appearing in A-Minor. This story comes from her dissertation, and mark my words, the publisher who picks up the full collection will be a lucky little lizard indeed.
