2011 Kirkwood Award finalist Josh DuBose’s short story, “The Bull,” was recently published in Zyzzyva’s Winter 2011 issue. “The Bull” is the story of a boozy honeymoon in Mexico that results in a timely separation and an unlikely spiritual awakening; it’s a story in the short story collection that Josh is currently working on.
Josh says, “I’ve taken courses with Adam Cushman and Lou Mathews. Both taught me—and continue to teach me—how to be a better writer. The best advice I got and continue to follow is to not endlessly tinker with a story, trying to get it perfect, but get it to a good place, send it out to the appropriate journals and move on to the next one.”
Congratulations, Josh! We’re happy to share your great news.
