Third and final contributor for this Wednesday’s episode is the talented Diane Payne. Her story, “Flight of Desire,” was originally published in the journal “Literary Orphans,” the second story we’ve featured from that journal. Nancy Stohlman’s story “Requiem: for piano” from Episode 6 was also previously published in “Literary Orphans.” Welcome to the show, Diane!

Diane Payne is the author of Burning Tulips (Red Hen Press), Freedom’s Just Another Word (Sweatshop Publishers), and she’s been published in hundreds of literary magazines.  Diane is the MFA Director at University of Arkansas-Monticello. 

Happy reading,
