I have a letter (yes, an actual letter) published in this issue of The Dirty Napkin, which is an awesome publication with intimidating contributor bios. The wonderful editors have also decided to make my audio reading one of the handful available to non-subscribers—so anyone can listen to me read it (beware).
The epistle is an interesting form. The email missive, the AIM conversation, the cacophony of “tweets”—these successors do not quite make for a true spiritual supplantation. And, though the epistle has a practical purpose (to convey a message), its literary merit (if it exists) can be unrelated altogether. It may even be a pleasant surprise.
