A beloved 5,000 word story of mine has been accepted for publication in the Spring 2012 issue of Per Contra. I am excited about this because that is where I first read the short stories of Chika Unigwe, author of On Black Sisters Street. They have also published stories by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Petina Gappah. Cool stuff! And yes, they pay!
A creative non-fiction piece of mine has also been accepted for future publication in Evergreen Review. Barney Rosset, 86, 'the most dangerous man in publishing', the man who published Samuel Beckett's 'Waiting for Godot' and fought puritanism on many fronts is the publisher of this reputable journal.
Also, the last issue of Sentinel Nigeria published my short story 'Your Man'.
This is a good year already. And there is more to come. Watch this space.
