Toho Journal, a young print-and-online literary magazine based in Philadelphia, invited short stories for its second issue that managed a strong sense of place in less than 500 words.

The journal is available now for $20, and an online version is promised soon. Meantime, yo9u can read my st0ry ==>here.
