I'm very happy to announce that Ann Montgomery got her wonderful (and wonderfully titled) creative nonfiction piece "Papaya Abortion" accepted to Long River Review. This was one of our first-round submissions (an 82% match). Long River Review is an excellent journal, university run (University of Connecticut), well-edited, diversely voiced. And they are lucky to get such a wonderful piece of writing. Congrats, Ann!
Ann Montgomery has been a midwife for the past twenty years in conflict zones, post-disaster settings, and Canada's Arctic. She has a PhD in Epidemiology that focused on preventing maternal death in low-income countries. When not working, she lives on a sailboat on the ocean with her partner. This is her first published short story since eighth grade. If you'd like to learn more about Ann, check out her blog: www.sailing-afrikii.blog.
