Oregon Humanities Magazine published my most recent essay in their Fall/Winter 2012 issue Next, and thanks to the brilliant Kathleen Holt some of my photos were published right along with it.

Thanks to Kathleen and everyone at OHm for making the piece look so beautiful.
If you are looking for your work to get published in one of the best journals in the U.S., I encourage you to send your work in to The Missouri Review's annual Editor's Prize Competition. If your story wins (or is a finalist), THEY PAY YOU a lot of money! And if you don't win, your entry fee of $20 earns you a year's subscription to the magazine.
The deadline is October 1st.
This is not one of those magazines that only publishes the work of known writers. TMR really does publish, nourish and support writers at every stage of their careers. So why not let it be you?

It's kind of hard to read, I know.
Here's what it says:
"If there is anybody known to you who might benefit from a letter or a visit, do not on any account postpone the writing or the making of it. The difference made will almost certainly be more than you have calculated."
