1st Story Accepted in 2008

Yesterday, I just found out (officially) that a short lyrical essay I submitted to SOUTH LOOP REVIEW about my おばあさま(my grandmama) was accepted for its September issue. Holla!

The SLR is a rad (not to mention, pretty-looking) journal out of Columbia College Chicago offering creative non-fiction and photography. I'm so stoked. This is my first CNF piece to be accepted, and also, it will be nice that my peeps/family can buy something I've written at one of the Borders in Chicago.
