Erica Zora Wrightson‘s essay “Artichoke,” published in the debut issue of Slake, was just named a 2011 “Notable Essay” in this year’s edition of The Best American Essays.
Says Slake editor Joe Donnelly: “We published this meditation on some of her final memories of her mother in our first issue, and co-editor Laurie Ochoa likes to say it was one of the first pieces she received that told her Slake was going to be special.”
Wrightson’s achievement is great news for a mag which is in the midst of a Kickstarter fundraising drive. The more attention the better.
