Call for Submissions: My Wandering Uterus

The fabulous Byron Ballard (forensic folklorist & village witch) suggested putting together an anthology of women’s travel writing to be called My Wandering Uterus. And while I continue to say, ‘No more editing jobs!’ somehow I have been roped into this project. So here is the call: We seek essays, stories and poetry about your…

Another zippy trip down to Connecticut to see my pals. Great to see Marko, Bilokur and of course the Queen of Everything, Stephanie Johnson.
