“Thursday night karaoke” nominated for Pushcart Prize, Sundress Award

I’m thrilled to announce that the good folks at Little Fiction have nominated my story “Thursday night karaoke” for a Pushcart Prize and a Sundress Best of the Net Award. This is a great honour, and I’m grateful.

For those of you not in the know, Little Fiction is one of the most celebrated, innovative online literary journals in North America. LF produces high-quality short story “singles” in multiple formats, lovingly designed by managing editor and stylemaster Troy Palmer.


“Thursday night karaoke” tells the tale of a Thursday night cast of karaoke warriors. It was inspired by a dark, snowy night in Halifax–one of my last evenings in the city. You can read the story online here, and check out the video trailer for the story as well.

If you’re super keen, you can order the story as part of Little Fiction’s cool new printed anthology of music, called A Mixtape of Words.
