Congratulations to Lyle Roebuck ~ recommended reading: "The Crab" @ The Arkansas Review
Lyle Roebuck's story "The Crab" will appear in the Winter 2010 issue
Since we've worked with Lyle in the past on this story, we can't help but to raise our fists
with him in a triumphant, "Hell, yeah!"
Here's a short Q & A we had recently with Lyle.
Q: At Our Stories, we consider anyone we've ever workshopped a member of Our writing community, and when a writer later succeeds with that piece, well, we'd like to think of that as an indicator that we're doing something right. What did working with OS do for you and your work?
A: Good writing can only be improved through tireless revision and thoughtful editorial feedback; the latter is what Our Stories offers to those who submit. If, as a writer, you are open to considering objective criticism, your fiction will be better for it.
Q: What's next for you and your writing?
A: I'm sitting on a collection of about a dozen stories, plus a novel, all written over the past eight years. In 2011-12 I'm taking a sabbatical from my teaching job to travel and concentrate on writing.
Thanks for being part of our writing community.
