"An Open Letter to Charlotte A. Cavatica"--at Defenestration

About six months ago, this odd little humor piece of mine was accepted by the literary magazine Defenestration. It would be published November 9, the editors told me. That date meant little to me at the time, far less than it does now. The sentiments in the last paragraph may resonate with this current cultural moment for some of us, but otherwise the piece is completely apolitical. P.S. In case there's any doubt, I adore E.B. White and his brilliant Charlotte's Web.



I'm pleased to report that my piece, "Family Jeopardy" (which ran originally in The Rumpus's "Funny Women" series), was awarded honorable mention in the adult category of the Mark Twain House's 2015 Royal Nonesuch National Humor Writing Contest. To quote the man himself, "These splendid facts strain belief; but they are true."
