“Dance of the Ring” in Midwestern Gothic

MWGissue11Midwestern Gothic  is a quarterly print literary journal based in Ann Arbor, Michigan dedicated to featuring work about or inspired by the Midwest, by writers who live or have lived here. My essay Dance of the Ring is part of Issue 11 (Fall 2013) their first devoted to Creative Nonfiction. I originally presented this Mad About You-inspired  story as part of Solo Homo 8 with NewTown Writers in June 2010. The now defunct Q Review published it online in June 2011. I’m honored to be a part of this exciting issue and to have it as the new literary home for my story.

Winter comes early to Northern Indiana. This was taken yesterday. This is the only shot in which I’m really smiling. So I picked this one. While not exactly happy about shoveling, there is something beautiful about the first snow shovel of the year.

Then it gets real old real quick.

Stay warm, everyone. 🙂
