I’m excited to get my hands on the new issue of Saltgrass, which features two Fun Camp shorts along with new poems by Lisa Jarnot, Natalie Lyalin, and others.
One of the most productive editorial back-and-forths I’ve had to date was with Abigail Holstein, who accepted “No Moms for Miles,” then pushed me to improve it. The last line was pretty thin and the whole thing was too short. I took a day to generate some new material for the piece and came up with so much stuff that I needed to spill some over into a new short about pool safety. The new version of “No Moms for Miles” is so much better, and has become the first short in the Fun Camp manuscript.
