Sharp Things, Week One

Only two more weeks until the reading period for Issue 1 opens! Until then, we’ll be tweeting sharp things from literature, poetry, art, and music over at @GoldenKeyLit. Join the conversation and share the sharpness with the hashtag #sharpthings. In case you missed any from week one, here’s the round-up:

“The Devil, A Digression” by Michael Stewart

“And the woodsman failed to breach those fangs in time.”
“Dirty Knife”, sung live by Neko Case

“He sells needles to prick your heart / And they’ll take small bites”
