Didi Wood’s stories and photos have appeared in Smokelong Quarterly, Vestal Review, FRiGG, Night Train, and other print and online publications. For six years, she served as an editor at flashquake. Her story “Sunset in Santa Monica” appears in Smokelong Quarterly: The Best of the First Ten Years (2003-2013)
She lives with her family near Seattle. She’s a fan of the serial comma, and she’s trying to remember to type only one space after a period. Often she’s festooned with cats. Sometimes she plays with dolls. Creepy dolls.

Deal Makers and Breakers:
I hesitate to specify a deal breaker, because a good writer can make anything transcend the banal. So do that. Go deep. Give us something true, something resonant. Haunt us. Make us feel something. Make us care. Please don’t send a long-setup-to-a-clever-punchline masquerading as a story. I look forward to reading your work!
