I’ve started sending out articles and essays to literary journals and publications all about Emmett Wilson and his family.
My first submission is to Saw Palm: Florida Literature & Art. This is a Florida-themed literary journal with a lot of creative and interesting components.
My first shot at the journal is a little 500-word-or-less essay for their section titled “Places to Stand.” I’m writing about Emmett’s father, Dr. Francis C. Wilson and the Wilson family home in Chipley. I’ll let you know what and if I hear back from them!
I swear that these smaller pieces are the hardest damn things to write: One is forced to keep on topic and be clear; direct.
