Your humble Fishie is a hard news junkie, so it took him a little while to notice that the LA Times recently debuted a new narrative romance column called “LA Affairs.” Seems a bit like a California take on the New York Times‘ “Modern Love” column. Back when I was in J-school in New York, “Modern Love” was always considered the place for young writers to break into the NYT. A fellow student of mine wrote an amazing piece about a Hatian woman who married a voodoo snake spirit in an elaborate ritual. So if LA now has the equivalent outlet, it can only be a good thing for young freelancers of the city.
