  1. Hi Lucy, I recently moved up in editorial at a lit mag. I really loved your flash piece How Do I Get Unlost On My Own a while back, and wanted to know if I could solicit you to submit a short story for our site. Sorry for the unorthodox intro, email is jesse.salvo@gmail.com if you’re interested!
