HAMMOND – "Spring" and "Camera Man," short stories by Southeastern Louisiana University English instructor Alan Marsh, were recently published in the Fall 2014 edition of "New Plains Review" and "Nebo: A Literary Journal," respectively.
"Alan Marsh's short stories expertly plunge the reader into questions about loyalty, sanity and alienation," said colleague and fellow English instructor Aimee Barrios. "The evocative short story 'Spring' explores the brutality of relationships as they are mirrored in the brutality of nature, and 'Camera Man' is a thought-provoking look at the lenses through which we view each other and ourselves."
"I felt honored to have 'Spring' published by 'New Plains Review,' as they only accept one piece of fiction in their biannual publication," Marsh said.
"New Plains Review" is published semiannually by the University of Central Oklahoma. The publication is committed to publishing high quality poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction by established and emerging writers, Marsh said.
"Over the years, "New Plains Review" has expanded its range to invite writers beyond the university community," he added. "They receive hundreds of submissions from all over the country, and the authors they publish range from the well-known to the soon-to-be-discovered."
"Camera Man," Marsh said, is a commentary on popular entertainment/media, concentrating mostly on reality shows.
"Nebo: A Literary Journal" is published at Arkansas Tech University. It routinely publishes Arkansas Tech students and unpublished writers along with nationally known writers. The journal has won awards at the Arkansas College Media Awards for poetry, fiction, and art.
