"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Some Call For Submissions Love <3 Tiny Text

Think your writing could break the internet?
Tiny Text is looking for #ViralLit to share with the world!
 
Tiny Text is a Twitter journal (@Tiny_Text) that publishes #LittleLit: Twitter-length fiction and memoir, as well as serials. 
 
What is Twitter-length? 140 characters or less—spaces count!—and each section of a serial should fall within that size requirement, as well as be able to stand on its own. We’re looking for stories that amaze us by how much can fit into such a small space. 
 
Follow them on Twitter for weekly writing prompts and send up to three stories or memoirs at a time (including your name and Twitter handle) via Twitter direct message or via email to teeny.tiny.textATgmailDOTcom 
 
They publish one piece of Twitter-length prose every Monday and every publication gets two unique promo Tweets earlier the same day—but they’re hoping to expand that number, so send away! Submissions are eagerly read year-round. Please allow 4 weeks before sending more work or inquiring about the status of your submission.

Daily Prompt Love <3 Wisdom Sits in Places

11 October 2017

From Wisdom Sits in Places: Landscape and Language Among the Western Apache by Keith H. Basso

“Knowledge of places is closely linked to knowledge of the self, to grasping one’s position in the larger scheme of things, including one’s own community, and to securing a confident sense of who one is a person.” 

“One must acknowledge that local understandings of external realities are fashioned from local cultural materials, and that, knowing little or nothing of the latter, one’s ability to make appropriate sense of “what is” and “what occurs” in another’s environment is bound to be deficient.” 

Make art about the knowing or unknowing linked with place, about the wisdom ‘in places.’
