Two items of interest to me (and, I hope, to some of you):
1) Shenandoah is calling for submissions for its 60th anniversary issue on Flannery O’Connor: “The editor seeks essays, poems, short stories, reviews, photographs and other artwork about, related to or in honor of the fiction and life of Ms. O’Connor.”
2) I just found out about an anthology of coming-of-age published by The Hudson Review last year. It’s called Writes-of-Passage and includes work by William Trevor, Elizabeth Spencer, Tennessee Williams, Wendell Berry, and others. Looks excellent.
