Good evening, blog readers! I hope you’ve been having a great weekend. The first order of business is some very exciting news — the Jet Fuel Review has released its 9th issue! We have some amazing fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art in this issue. This time around we’re also featuring the work of some very talented high school students. Please check out the 9th issue of Jet Fuel because our editors worked very hard on it. If you missed out on submitting your work to the Review this time around, remember that our submission period will open up again in the fall.
This past week has been very busy here on the blog as well. In my weekly advice post, I wrote about the value of re-outlining. If you’re beginning a second draft of your story, then this might help you out. Our featured poem on the blog this week was The Problem by Jane Hirshfield. Also this week, Sabrina Parr reviewed a book called Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton.
Jet Fuel editor Dominique Dusek continued her “Before They Were Famous” series of posts with a fascinating exploration of William Faulkner before he became the writer we all know. Be sure to check it out! Another editor of ours, Michael Cotter, continued his “What Are You Watching?” blogs with a discussion about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. If you haven’t checked out the show yet, see what Michael has to say about it.
In the world of film, Miguel Gonzalez wrote about the trend of after-credit scenes, which has gained popularity in recent years. In addition, Michael Lane wrote about the recent horror film Unfriended.
Finally, at the end of this week, our “Meet the Editors” series profiled Victoria Vega, who has been helping edit and manage the blog this past semester. Check out this post!
Thanks for reading the blog! I hope you stick around for more stuff from us.
