I have a new short story in the debut issue of Twelve Stories, an online literary journal. I sent them something because I liked their premise. They accept submissions until they find 12 stories they like, then they publish an issue. If you like “July 4: Easter”—which is what my story is called—you can find some of my previously published stories on Scribd.

I profiled a bunch of commercials directors for Creativity magazine’s annual “Directors to Watch” issue, including Trish Sie (pictured) who conceived and directed the ingenious treadmill video for her brother’s band OK Go—which went on to win a Grammy for best video. I also talked to rock photographer Autumn De Wilde, veteran copywriter-turned-director Harold Einstein, U.K. creative collective Minivegas, and whimsical animator Woof Wan-Bau. The articles and samples from their reels should be available on the site for a few weeks.
