Woke up this morning to email informing me that Parsec Ink’s yearly anthology series, Triangulation, has accepted my flash piece, “Matryoshka,” for its next anthology, Triangulation: Lost Voices.
I love this story and I’m glad it found a home. It’s an original fairy tale told in a storytelling voice unlike any I’ve used before, so it was exciting that someone else felt the experiment worked. But it’s the concept that I love most about the story. Questions of identity and personhood fascinate me, especially as they concern women. I won’t spoil the story for you — I’ll just say the spark for this story was an article I read a while back about women over fifty often feeling as though they’ve become invisible to society.
I’m not sure when the anthology will be available, but I’ll post here when I know.
