Ten Fletcher essays selected
for 2009 publication

upstreet’s Creative Nonfiction Editor is on a roll—or so it seems. Nine essays by Harrison Candelaria Fletcher have been selected for 2009 publication in five literary journals. They are:

“Inheritance,” New Ohio Review, Spring 2009.
“Windows,” “Monster,” and “Stray,” Grasslands Review, Summer 2009.
“Rings,” Dos Passos Review, Fall 2009.
“Relics,” Palabra, Fall 2009.
“Wreath,” “Brotherhood,” and “Ash,” Water~Stone Review, Fall 2009.

Also, Harrison’s essay, “The Beautiful City of Tirzah,” will appear in Sue William Silverman’s forthcoming book, Fearless Confessions: A Writer’s Guide to Memoir (U. of Georgia Press, June 2009), a textbook and anthology for beginning and experienced writers who want to craft compelling art out of personal experience. This is the essay that was selected by Michael Martone and Lex Williford for The Touchstone Anthology of Contemporary Creative Nonfiction (Simon and Schuster, 2007), and by the Pushcart editors for a Special Mention in the 2008 Pushcart Prize anthology.

Nice going, Harrison.
