Please check out my “Best Work File” for my newest submission, a modern story about the life of my friend’s mother written in an Alice Munro style!
If you are not familiar with Alice Munro’s work, please acquaint yourself! She is a fabulous author who uses flash-forwards, as opposed to flashbacks, and a non-linear timeline to suspend the reader in her stories. She often writes of divorce and extra marital affairs, and typically uses a motif of car mileage to indicate relationship status.
Check out my piece, entitled “Tar,” to see how I bring these elements of her writing to life in my own style. 🙂
Also, 100 points to whoever can catch the double meaning of tar in my story!
