"The Dancer" is Published!



It feels like eons since I last announced the publication of a short story or poem. It’s no surprise, really. Lately, my writing has centered around proposals for research studies, literature reviews, and clinical papers. That’s not to say I haven’t been creative writing (hey… clinical papers are creative, too!). I have been… really… I have. Trying to get through doctoral studies without having a creative outlet would be insane… and I don’t want to go that route, for sure! On the other hand, writing a poem, short story, or piece of creative non-fiction is one thing. Having it published is quite another.

Long story short…

I am honored to announce the publication of my short story, “The Dancer,” in the ever-beautiful and ever-intriguing Yellow Medicine Review: A Journal of Indigenous Literature, Art, and Thought. This illustrious journal features narratives of subjective cultural experiences, and “The Dancer” is just that! It is a story of somatic experience, existential meaning, spirituality, and holism. It is a story of beauty beyond the physical… and faith beyond reason. It is a story of transcendence. It is a story of immortality. It is a story of Egypt. It is a story of love.

I am proud to say that this is not my first publication in Yellow Medicine Review. My short story, “Zar,” was published in the Fall 2011 edition. I would also like to say that, time allowing, I plan to write more material for future publication in this delightful journal.

The ravishingly stunning Spring 2013 paperback edition of Yellow Medicine Review, guest edited by Natalia Andrievskikh, is available for purchase from Amazon, and yes… I highly recommend it! Please do spread the word!!!

    1. Thank you so much, Adriana. I hope you enjoy the story. It's a flash piece, and for me, those are always just that more difficult to write because they have to be concise but full. But then... I love a good challenge! :-) Much love back to you, dear!

  5. FÉLICITATIONS ma belle Nevine!
    Je suis très très confuse d'arriver seulement maintenant!
    Le boulot, les travaux dans le jardin et le garage et ailleurs m'ont volé tout mon temps!
    Mais j'ai eu une pensée pour toi chaque jour. J'espère que tu pardonneras mon retard à venir te féliciter comme tu le mérites.
    BRAVO pour toutes tes belles réussites mon amie!
