Congrats to the Washington Writers Publishing House 2022 honorees: Poet Anthony Moll and fiction writer Suzanne Feldman. While I didn’t play a role in the fiction editorial review this year, I am excited to dive into Suzanne’s collection “The Witch Bottle and Other Stories.” Kudos to Suzanne for coming up such an evocative and memorable book title. The cover design should be very cool. (An aside: I find so many collection titles forgettable, especially the ones leaning into to what is supposed to sound like some kind of age old adage or a clever turn of phrase. Even when “good” they start to feel interchangeable and hard to remember. Someone should create a short story collection title app).
