Read “Turkish Apple Harvest” at Lowestoft Chronicle

For a time, this was my “most rejected story” before it was picked up by the kind folks at Lowestoft Chronicle, a quarterly online literary magazine publishing humorous travel-related fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. Despite seven rejections, I always liked this story, based on one day of my life in 1997 when I was hiking across the Anatolian Plain in central Turkey (which is where I took the above photo).

During the editing stage, my wife gave me a few ideas for the story and my writers’ group, the Internet Writing Workshop, heaped suggestions on me as well.

The story is a bit funny and a bit tragic and set in an absolutely wondrous landscape.

Give it a read in Lowestoft Chronicle today.
