“Fresh Water” in “FORTH Magazine”

My latest short fiction piece “Fresh Water” was published in FORTH Magazine. This flash fiction was inspired by a writing exercise I did in a writing class with Richard Rayner (read my interview with him in Exposition Review) about the last time two people see each other. Set on Mars, this is a story of love found, lived, and scattered across the universe.

“Ready to Where?” in Drunk Monkeys

I’m excited to share my short fiction piece Ready to Where?, which was published in the January 2017 issue of Drunk Monkeys. I hold this piece close to my heart for a few reasons. I read a version of it at one of the MPW student-faculty readings at The Last Bookstore in Downtown LA. It’s also based on my art history master’s thesis, The Model as Muse, which examined fashion photography and fashion; shifts in the museum space and hierarchies of culture; and different constructs of the muse, the model, and gender. Even the description of the thesis reveals its complexities, but with this hopefully more approachable fictionalization of gender and identity constructs, I hope to spark some of the same thought trajectories and conversations (both internal and verbal). Enjoy:
