Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

New Essay Published at Dr. TJ Eckleburg Review

My new essay "A Damn Fine Female Body Part" is live at the Doctor TJ Eckleburg Review. It is NSFW, covering the topics of curse words, sexual objectification, and the actor Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead, all in under 2,000 words!

My Short Story "Belong" Published at Word Riot

May entertain, but it is a little edgy, NSFW (not safe for work) as the kids say, so consider yourself warned:

Want to Publish in Literary Journals?

I put together a list of links/publishing resources to help writers research literary journals and start submitting. The resources also can help you find really interesting journals worth subscribing to. A lot of readers seem to bypass short stories and short creative nonfiction, but some great work is being published.

Monkeybicycle Publishes My Short Story ‘Bunnies Bathing’

My First Fiction Publication has been posted today as the weekend feature at Monkeybicycle. I endured 127 rejections of various stories before I received this acceptance from Guest Web Editor Casey Bye (and screamed myself silly).

 

Why didn’t I give up once I’d reached 50 or 100 rejections? I wish I could say it’s because I’m tough and driven and I know that my writing is worth putting out in the world, but…

Great Smokies fiction classes unlock your inner writer

Almost everyone has dreams of being a writer. But moving those dreams out of the clouds and onto paper can be a real struggle. Sometimes the solid ideas just won’t come. In other cases, the ideas are within reach, but knowing how to structure those ideas into language and a format that other people might enjoy remains elusive.



While writing is ultimately a solitary pursuit, some instruction and feedback can smooth the process, helping you to keep moving toward your dreams instead of… Continue

Creative juices frozen? Great Smokies poetry class zaps them into life

The mere thought of writing poetry can stir up buried, primal fears of failure and inadequacy. Normally stalwart people, brows pale and sweaty with visions of being unable to produce even a decent ending to “Roses are red, violets are blue,” lament: “Write poetry? I don’t know how! I’m not a poet!”



But every human being on the planet has the potential to be a poet, and writing poetry isn’t scary. It’s actually a useful process for awakening both your creativity and your love of… Continue

The Great Smokies Review has launched, and it's worth a visit

Some writers can use language to create images that evoke the gamut of emotions. Some writers can tell a darn good story. But not every writer can do both.



Paula Kane, a long-time student in the Great Smokies Writing Program, is a card-carrying member of that special class of writers whose words can make you shiver with their beauty while still satisfying your desire for plots and character development. Her short story, "The Color of Magic," appears in the premier issue of The Great… Continue
