How You Lose One

I’ve been reading Catch-22 for a while now and I’m really loving the book. It’s hard to read it and not laugh, and then feel bad about laughing because this book is critiquing serious issues our country was facing. What makes the pain even worse is that all of this is so relevant today. It goes…

A Steinway

Believe it or not, but my last post was my 300th post! I’ll admit I’m a little disappointed it wasn’t a fiction piece, but we’ll survive. To make up for it though, I have a small flash fiction piece for you all today. I hope you enjoy! A Steinway The piano wouldn’t fit in the…

Branding Issue

If you’ve ever seen my personal Twitter account, you know I’m a left-leaning voter. You might? also know I voted for Bernie this past election. You would definitely know how much I hate Trump. I’m at a point right now where I’m tired of seeing how big of a role corporations play in our country….

Change

ICE has been coming up in the news a lot recently and everything that comes out keeps getting worse and worse. It’s really sickening that we as a country are so capable of offering such little empathy to those who seek our help but happen to be born with different colored skin. I spent my…

July Reading List

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to give you all a heads up that the July Reading List is now up. If you haven’t taken a look at any of my lists before, I simply list a couple books that I’ve read or want to read and try to convince you that you need to read them…

Pulled Away

I’m going crabbing tomorrow so I wanted to write a little poem about what it must be like for the crabs to be ripped from their homes. They’ll know the ocean their whole life and then we’ll come, hungry, and take them away. If all goes well tomorrow, I’ll let you know how it goes. Maybe…

Help

This is a spur of the moment flash fiction story for you all. I haven’t been able to come up with interesting ideas for stories lately, but I knew I had to start somewhere so I just started writing. I’m currently reading Catch-22, and I love how funny it is. I’ve been saying for a little…

The Line

Here’s another example of what I’m looking to publish this Winter if you’re interested in submitting to Come and Go Literary. We’re living in crazy times where lines are crossed and nothing is being done. I want to get something done through writing. I want you to want it too. The Line We’re nothing if…

Are You Ready, America?

At the end of every post, I always mention I’m accepting submissions for the 2018 Winter Issue of Come and Go Literary, but I don’t think I’ve given you all an example of what I’m looking to accept. I’m sure over the years, I’ve written stories and poems with hints of social justice and political…

Prisoner

I had a lot of ideas about a poem where someone couldn’t escape their past, and I wanted it to be a specific instance that triggers that person to run, but I wanted to focus on what happens after the fact, and what it would be like inside that person’s mind. I was reading an…
