A Shout Out to Soliloquies Anthology

Apr 12, 2016

Some student-run anthologies seem to do everything right. They provide great literary content, superb communications, and lots of celebrations for contributors and readers. Soliloquies Anthology, published by Concordia University, fits into this top-notch category. The journal publishes emerging and established writers in Montreal and internationally, online and twice annually in print. I was delighted to have my story, “Magpie Assassin”, published in their last print run. After I submitted to the journal, the student crew got back to me in less than a week, a record in my twenty-plus years in short-story world. The editor took such care with my work, providing a respectful give and take that I’ve often found lacking at other magazines. I was even invited to Montreal to celebrate at their launch party, which I had to sadly decline. To round out the A+ experience, I discussed writing with the laser-sharp Alex Custodio for the Soliloquies Writes in Conversation series. Do check out their website. There is so much to explore here for writers and readers alike.
