Subterranean – My New Short Story at Connotation Press

Feb 15, 2014 | Cara's Adventures, Writing

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAWhen my aging mom broke her femur and our aging house’s sewer line broke in the same week, I felt overwhelmed by dealing with both, but also by the idea of finding a connection. The result is a creative nonfiction piece called Subterranean. I’m honored to announce that Connotation Press has published this new short story in the February edition of its online literary journal. Although Subterranean is nonfiction, it’s also an experiment with the quick imagery and poetic rhythms associated with flash fiction. The result is a vivid glimpse at what we bury, what we flush, and what we keep. Please stop by Connotation Press and take a look.
