1. My first short story, ‘Lay Down The Dark Layers’, has been published by the Irish literary magazine, The Stinging Fly (hurrah!)
2. This anthology—Winged: New Writing on Bees—is essential and beautiful and its existence in the world makes me happy (about some humans and all bees).

Many, many congratulations, first to you, then to the bees! Stay happy (and thanks for sharing your happiness!).
Congratulations, Deborah. I read a terrific story about a beekeeping program for prisoners in The Sun a few years ago. It blew my mind how bees read humans, kind of like horses. I’m about to ship off a short story to Fish Publishing in County Cork. I made honorable mention there a few years ago, but didn’t get published. I’m happy for you.
Yes! They can recognize individual human faces. My in-laws keep bees and they’re just endlessly fascinating.
All the best with your submission! I haven’t heard of Fish, must look ’em up.
