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.
