A Poetry Sampler: Elegies
Jennifer Davis Michael

Julia Watts is our guest fiction editor for 2022
"My fiction focuses on Appalachians who don’t fit the stereotypes and often who don’t fit in, period, because they’re LGBTQ+, because they dream of life beyond the mountains, or (in the case of my middle-grade trilogy) because they have psychic powers. I write adult fiction, young adult fiction, and middle-grade fiction, all set in the Appalachian region."
Congratulations to Still contributor Charlotte Hamrick, whose flash fiction Hot Cold & Blue was selected by the editors for inclusion in the forthcoming 2022 edition of The Best Small Fictions!
And congratulations to all of our 2021 Still contributors whose work we nominated for the annual Best of the Net, Best Small Fictions, Best Microfiction, and Pushcart Prize.
