Indiana Voice Journal has elected to publish Columbus Day in their online journal.  Great!  This story has been steadily rejected since 2012.  I have rewritten it a dozen times and just did some wording adjustments on it last month.  I consider it one of my best outputs and better than the other three that were published before it.  Here’s what they said:

Dear Donald Baker,

Hello! Thank you for your interest in Indiana Voice Journal.

I received your short story submission “Columbus Day” and I would be delighted to include it in the April 2016 issue of IVJ.
