Hello, blog readers! I hope you’ve been having a lovely weekend. Before we take stock of what we’ve been discussing here on the blog, I want to remind you all about the spring submission period for the Jet Fuel Review. If you want to send in your fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art for consideration, you have until March 15th. There’s still time! If you’re interested in submitting your work, check out this page on the Jet Fuel website.
This was a busy week at the blog! We had a Writing Advice post all about story openings, which can be the most difficult part of any story to develop. If you’re interested in some advice on story openings, or if you have some advice of your own to offer, check out the post! We also featured a poem entitled Story by Frances Leviston.
Our editors posted a lot of great content to the blog this week. Dominique started us off with another post in her “Before They Were Famous” series. This week she discussed the life of author Chuck Palahniuk. In Michael’s “What Are You Watching?” blog series this week, he talked about Playing House, a new show on the USA network. In Sabrina’s Book Corner, Sabrina reviewed Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter.
One of our film bloggers, Mike Egan, wrote a post about Interstellar and its Oscar snub. Michael Lane, our new horror film blogger, began his new blog series this week. In the first installment of “Down a Dark Lane,” Michael discussed the first three sequels to “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” Last, but certainly not least, this week saw the return of our “Meet the Editors” blog feature. This week we featured Michael Cotter, the Jet Fuel Review‘s Assistant Poetry Editor. If you want to check out our past “Meet the Editors” posts, click here!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s blog content. Stay tuned for more fun and interesting posts!
