My New Position: Senior Nonfiction Editor at jmww!

scrabble-tiles-906404_1920Well-y well-y well-y! If we have been paying attention, in January, jmww published m’essay Round Down. They had an open position as the senior nonfiction editor, and boy, did I snap up that application.

Writers: please do send me your work. Use the jmww Submissions page (scroll to the bottom). Make sure to address your cover letter to me. Mention that you are a subscriber to About Childhood. I will treat you well.

As you read About Childhood, you probably understand the ethos of what I look for in nonfiction. In case you need a nutshell:

Alle looks for essays with exquisitely observed moments lived by captivating characters, all firmly based in the agreed-upon reality. The combination must lead to endings that satisfy the story as well tapping into universal truths.

Go read the nice things they said about me

 

 

Author: allehall

I am a writer. I write to explore childhood: literary essays and short fiction, journalism, and three haiku. My published work expresses my belief that everything which did or did not happen to me as a child is manifesting in everything that is or is not happening to me today. More importantly, it is also manifesting for my children. I believe funny is the new navel-gazing, and that the best funny keeps a penny's worth of serious in an accessible pocket. Little-known fact: I have a completed novel decorating the inside of a desk drawer. Perhaps it is not funny enough.
