In 2013, the fine journal Prick of the Spindle published an essay of mine called "No Choice" in their online journal. However, after my piece had been up there for a while, the journal went through a redesign and refocusing. The online journal features book reviews, art, interviews and film. The literary journal became print only. In the process, their archive went offline, and my essay was no longer available at the site.
While I was at the AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Programs) conference, I got to talk with Prick of the Spindle's editor. She mentioned that she was working to get the archive back on the web site, and that in fact, the nonfiction was available again. Sure enough, I went to the site and found my piece, now with FABULOUS new artwork. If you haven't read "No Choice," or if you want to check out the new artwork, here it is: No Choice.
