Guest Editor for Storychord

Storychord combines art, music and fiction, publishing a story + song + piece of art every other Monday. I had published a story on the website earlier, and Sarah reached out to ask if I wanted to be a guest editor. I jumped at the chance! Even better, I got to solicit one of my favorite flash writers (Lauren Becker), one of my favorite artists (my sister(!), Jayme Cawthern), and a beloved local music act (Luray).


See the curated collaboration HERE.
