The Metonymical Pen will be on a brief hiatus while the author spends time at an important eleven day residency in Port Townsend, Washington. Until then, enjoy this Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto classic.
I earned an M.F.A. from Goddard College in 2013. Since then, my work has received the 2013 Beacon Street Prize in Short Fiction and the 2014 John Steinbeck Short Fiction Award. My stories have appeared in REED, reDivider, The Concho River Review, Sou'wester, Moon City Review, and elsewhere. Currently, I live in the desert with my family , but I am trying to move us closer to water. We need an ocean to float all of our ideas.
