A Resource and a Little Bragging from Carolyn

Naturally, I love to shout to the world about journals I'm published in so I'm hoping this one will interest some of you for either reading or as a resource for submissions. Especially the poets and literary writers. Here is the notice that Front Range, a literary journal from Montana State University sent out asking for support in both instances:

The 2010 issue of Front Range (formerly MO: Writings from the River) is now out, and is bigger and better than ever! This year’s issue features the works of such talented writers and award-winners as Mark Gibbons, Robert Lee, Ellaraine Lockie, Joshua Gray, Carolyn Howard-Johnson, Tom Holmes, Alan Berecka, Donna D. Vittuci, Adrian S. Potter, and many, many others!

Copies are available delivered to your home annually for $11 plus $3 postage.

Please feel free to check out archives and submission guidelines at

Frederick Bridger, PhD, Editor, 219 12 St. N., Great Falls, MT 59401

My story that appears in Front Range this issue is "Grandfather Rock." It is a story told to me by an American Indian woman I met when I was on a retreat for cancer survivors several years ago, a kind of magical realism piece. I am truly proud to be part of the literary effort.
