“SANDSTORIES” SELECTED IN NEWPORT LIFE MAGAZINE’S INAUGURAL WRITING CONTEST

The inspiration for the flash piece “Sandstories.” Poet Heather Sullivan and I were at either First or Second Beach (I can’t remember which now) in Newport, Rhode Island, July 15, 2006.

My flash fiction piece “Sandstories,” which is set on a beach in Newport, Rhode Island, was selected as a winner in the Newport Life Magazine (http://www.newportlifemagazine.com/) Inaugural Writing Contest. Winners were published in the March/April 2011 issue and most attended the Launch Party on Thursday, March 3, at Busker’s on Thames Street in Newport.

Writer and photographer Melissa Martin Ellis, Newport Life Magazine Managing Editor Annie Sherman, and me at the Launch Party, March 3, 2011.

The piece is a little over 500 words. You can read it on the Newport Life website here: http://www.newportlifemagazine.com/articles/2011/03/08/current_issue/doc4d6e660e60a45796452857.txt or subscribe here: https://secure.townnews.com/newportlifemagazine.com/subscriber_services/subscribe.php
