Post Road, Issue #25


This weekend I received an email from an editor.  I’m glad I was sitting down…

Hi there,

I just read your essay “The Stages of Civility” on Post Road, and really enjoyed it!  I especially loved the way Southern Missouri bloomed on the page, and how you render Wade so sweetly and disdainfully–such a complex character.

I am the Non-Fiction editor of [redacted].  We’re always looking for quality Non-Fiction, and would love to read a submission by you.  Looking forward to following your writing and future memoir.  All the best.

A nice note like this, for no reason at all?  There are good people in publishing.  There just are.  And for this I say, Thank You.
