I’ve been poring over the interviews at the core of Invisible Soul all week, trying to see what’s common, what themes to earmark for the book’s sectioning. It’s coming slowly; naturally, most cover a variety of topics that have to be separated out and organized. But some also lend themselves to standalones because stories they contain are so exciting.
On a related front, I just submitted a chapter on what you could call the geography of Invisible Soul to the Great Lakes Cultural Review, a non-profit magazine gearing up for its debut issue this fall. GLCR will feature writing of all kinds from Cleveland, Buffalo, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Toronto, with editors from one city processing submissions from another.
Word is the bigger cities have submitted a ton of material, but Cleveland’s falling short. Which gives me a better shot but gets me wondering what’s with the lack of drive here.
