Good evening, blog readers! I hope that your week has been fantastic. Before we get to all the amazing posts that have gone up in the past couple of weeks, I want to remind you that the Jet Fuel Review‘s reading period is now open. Until March 15th, you can submit your fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and artwork to be considered for our next issue. We also have a special bouts-rimés section in this issue, which you can read all about on our website. For more information about submitting to the Jet Fuel Review, click here.
There have been two rather exciting blog-related posts in recent weeks. First, Michael Lane introduced our new assistant blog editors. You can read all about Gina Capperino, Armon Thurmand, and China McDonald in the post here. We welcome these three new contributors and look forward to what they have to offer! Additionally, at the end of this past week, we posted another installment in our “Meet the Editors” series. In this week’s post, you can learn more about Sam Gennett, the assistant managing editor and assistant nonfiction editor at the Jet Fuel Review.
If you’re looking for some writing advice, we have two new posts up. First, you can learn about the secrets behind dynamic description in your story. The second post covers the topic of finding a flow in your writing and letting it carry you to the story’s conclusion.
We’ve also featured a few poems here on the blog recently. These include Serving the people of West London by Penelope Shuttle and Edward Hopper’s Automat by Fleda Brown. If you’re looking for some new music to discover, look no further than our most recent Jet Fuel Jukebox posts! You can find tons of song recommendations in the posts for January 26 and February 2.
There have been some great reviews on the blog lately. Sabrina Parr has returned to her book review column, and this newest installment features Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter. Michael Lane posted a review of the horror film, The Boy, which you’ll learn that he didn’t like very much. Also, in our first student feature of the new year, Lewis student Caitlyn Quinlan wrote a review of “Grease: Live!”
Finally, in music-related posts, Jake Johnson wrote a review of the latest album from Panic! At The Disco, “Death of a Bachelor.” And our blogger Dan Fiorio wrote two music reviews in recent weeks, one for Chairlift’s new album “Moth,” and one for Ty Segall’s new album, “Emotional Mugger.”
I hope you’ve enjoyed these posts from the blog. Stay tuned for more interesting content in the weeks to come, and perhaps an exciting announcement.
