LEAD EDITOR

                         

2004-2009

SLQ is one of the nation’s premier flash fiction journals, publishing (during my tenure) W.P. Kinsella, Dan Chaon, Steve Almond, Stuart Dybek, Sherrie Flick, Robert Shapard, Melanie Rae Thon, and many other exceptional writers. Supervised a staff of seven writers with full responsibility for communications (with writers, other journals, etc.), author interviews, the features selection, and final editorial decisions. SLQ currently grew to have nearly 200,000 page views monthly! Also asked by Norton to participate in their flash fiction anthology New Sudden Fiction. Stefani Nellen’s “The Attraction of Asphalt” was selected to appear in Dzanc Books’ Best of the Web 2008. Funded and helped direct the Fish Fellowship. Ten of Wigleaf’s Fifty Best of 2009 came from SLQ. During my time as Lead Editor, submissions increased from about 300 per quarter to over 1200, while SLQ remained one of The Swiftest Markets.
