Rocking the Best American Notables

September 6, 2014 § 3 Comments


Our Semi-Literate Editor, Earlier in His Career

As we noted earlier in the week, the annual Best American Essays now features work published online, and Brevity is way proud to have two Notable Essays listed: “Field Guide to Resisting Temptation” by Sarah Wells and “Fracking: A Fable” by Barbara Hurd.  Those writer ladies make us mighty proud.

We we also noted, on that Facebook thing, that “if we were to list all of the past Brevity authors who are listed for work published last year in other fine journals, we would have a list up in the dozens.”  Notice the use of ‘list’ three times in that one sentence.  Anyone want to guess which moron on our staff wrote that one?  Hint: He’s named for a comic strip character.

But we did it, and here they are, all of them past or forthcoming Brevity authors, all of them listed for having published Notable Essays in 2014 (by and large, in other journals, but fine journals all the same):

Karen Babine, Chelsea Biondolillo, Sven Birkerts, Frank Bures, Jill Christman, Paul Crenshaw, Renee E. D’Aoust, Brian Doyle, Philip Gerard, Robin Hemley, Sonya Huber, Barbara Hurd, BJ Hollars, Judith Kitchen, Sean Kilpatrick, Kim Dana Kupperman, Lance Larsen, Sonja Livingston, Lee Martin, Rebecca McClanahan, Brenda Miller, Dinty W. Moore, Ander Monson, Adriana Paramo, Lia Purpura, Wendy Rawlings, Mimi Schwartz, David Shields, Ira Sukrungruang, Jill Talbot, Alison Townsend, Julie Marie Wade, Nicole Walker, and Sarah Wells.

Hooray for all!
