I just got an email from the people at The Literary Whip podcast, and I’m extremely excited to see their take on “Snow Queen.”

I originally submitted the story for the NonBinary Review‘s Hans Christian Andersen issue, but I was intrigued by the premise of the podcast that had, at the time, only just begun.  It’s turned into a great series, and it’s fascinating to see editors talk about stories that almost made the cut, but not quite, and discuss what ultimately guided their decisions.


I really can’t say how please I am to have finally seen this podcast come to life!  I didn’t originally intend the work to be read aloud, so in addition to the normal process of writing and revising the piece, I also got to consult with a pair of friends who work primarily in staged performance in terms of what would work and what would create unnecessary barriers to a spoken-word performance of the piece.

It was an eye-opening experience, and I’m immensely grateful for both their advice and the new experience!
