Have heart my writer friends: In the dead of winter, good things can come. For instance, my story “Arctic,” which I wrote in 2002 and had submitted to nearly seventy journals (and which was a finalist for the Glimmer Train very short story award) was finally published this winter in Open Road Review, a co-winner of their fiction award:

The same story was just released in audio version, recorded by actor Dennis Boutsikaris as an example of what CDM audio studios will do with the winning story of their new Portable Stories Series contest. See contest and scroll down for audio file:
Portable Story Series
The contest is a chance for writers to get their story professionally recorded by professional actors–like with selected shorts–get a cash prize and help charities (readers downloading the files are asked to donate.). Thanks to Open Road Review for choosing “Arctic” and for CDM studios for recording it!
