There Are Still Empty Places in California

September 8, 2013

Red-Savina-Review-Cover-Art-1.2My rhapsody in the form of an essay, “There Are Still Empty Places in California,” was released online today in the Fall, 2013 issue of the journal Red Savina Review, which is headquartered in southwestern New Mexico. Its inspiration was drawn from memories of the many driving vacations we took as a family when I and my siblings were young. You can read the full essay here.

Looking back, I realize it’s been six months since I last had something to talk about on this blog. Despair not! I have another new piece coming out in November that will represent a change of pace. Suffice it to say (for now) that the journal is called Haunted Magazine. Stay tuned for more information!

    A great piece, Jim. It reads so well, with a that special aura that accompanies the published form (as opposed to drafts)! Congratulations on another publication feather in your cap.

    Hello fellow RSR contributor. I read your piece in Red Savina Review 1.2 and, apart from being delighted to see another San Diego writer in the mix, enjoyed the way in which you write this dynamic, multi-faceted environment that we live in.

    I am working with SDWI this semester on a grant proposal and noticed your name in “A Year in Ink”. I haven’t had a chance to read your story, but was hoping to get your thoughts on the best “first step” in getting involved with SDWI. How did you begin? Are there other opportunities for being a better “literary citizen” in San Diego?

    Would love to hear your thoughts. Cheers on the publication credit.
