Andrea’s poem – Rape Kits – was published in Timeless Tales Magazine’s Pandora Box Issue 8/15/19
Posted Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at 6:21 pm
Andrea is honored that her poem Rape Kits was published in the 3rd edition of Pandora’s Box in Timeless Tales Magazine.

What Andrea has to say about this poem –

This poem was inspired by the HBO documentary - I am evidence and the appalling reality of the rape kit backlog remaining untested in the hundreds of thousands. I was horrified by the idea of these boxes in a warehouse where birds were actually making nests of the evidence, of these women’s bodies and pain, evidence that could put the rapists behind bars. And who better to open the boxes than Pandora?

Both Mark’s and Andrea’s flash fiction pieces published in Molotov Cocktail’s Flash Legend Mega Issue
Posted Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 8:55 pm
Both Mark’s and Andrea’s flash fiction pieces got into Molotov Cocktail’s Flash Legend Mega Issue beating out stories from the U.S., the U.K., Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy, and New Zealand. The editors commented that –

“We also saw a Molotov first, with two people who apparently live at the same address each scoring a slot in the Top 10 (must be something in the water)."

Once we saw that scrolling down on the contest winners’ announcement page, we hoped they were talking about us.

And they were!

Mark’s story and first published piece below
La Puerta – No. 9 (a suitable musical placement)
https://themolotovcocktail.com/vol-10/flash-legend/la-puerta/

Andrea’s story
The Eyes – No. 4
https://themolotovcocktail.com/vol-10/flash-legend/the-eyes/

Also, super exciting, both of our stories will be included in Molotov Cocktail’s Fifth Annual Prize Winners Anthology (details on that in late summer).

We’re looking forward to reading the entire issue.
