more Scoles good news

No stopping James Scoles, second-year student in fiction:

And today I got even more good news... 'The Electricity of
Crime,' a 5500-word short story workshopped in Pinckney's class
last semester, has been accepted for publication in Prairie
Fire. It will be featured in a special 'Winnipeg Fiction
Writers' issue coming out in April.

Huge thanks to Pinckney for pointing out serious flaws in POV;
big hugs to sisters Janelle (awesome reader), Melissa (details)
and Azizat (title). Great, great workshop.

Also, in December Pinckney nominated my work in Prairie Fire
for the Pushcart Prize.

Thanks, and all the best,


Congrats, James!
