Quick Fiction #18 came in the mail after a long wait! It’s the unofficial Iowa City issue with at least three Iowa Citians inside its pages: Me, Dylan Nice, and Rachel Yoder. The story I have in it is called Neighbors and I wrote it after reading Carl Sagan’s Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors which has a few paragraphs on caterpillar behavior which I decided to adapt to humans. Kind of a nice story.
Great job on getting published. There’s no feeling like seeing the title of your story on paper with your name proudly nestled under it. But I have a quick question. Does Quick Fiction pay its authors? If not, do you know other mags that do?
