In 2007, I got the first good news in my professional writing life–I won second place in the Parsec Short Story Contest. I was so excited that I literally had to go outside to hop around and giggle. The next year, Pete Butler asked me if I wanted to read submissions for Triangulation: Taking Flight. In 2011, I had the opportunity to co-edit Triangulation: Last Contact with Steve Ramey. Steve’s editorial style and mine didn’t mesh well, and I wanted to take time to focus on my writing, so I stepped down from the Triangulation staff. But the anthology was still very dear to me, so I continued to participate by writing and submitting stories.
Diane Turnshek, who created Triangulation in 2003, asked me if I’d like to edit the anthology this coming year. I said yes, and I was given the go-ahead to select my own theme for the issue.
The theme I chose is “Lost Voices.” The submission guidelines are posted, and we open to submissions in December. I’m excited to see what sort of stories people come up with.
